Did you know you can bake bacon? I love do it this way, no splatters and no bacon grease all over the stove. It takes about 20 minutes so plan accordingly.
This is what it looked like at 10 minutes into baking time. I turned it over at this point.
This was what it looked like at 18 minutes into baking just before I removed it from the oven.
- Heat oven to 350. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
- Lay bacon on sheet, it is okay if they touch as they cook it shrinks.
- Turn over at 10 minutes.
- Start watching at 15 minutes for doneness. Thick bacon will take longer. When done remove to paper towels to drain off grease.
- Note: I save the bacon grease in a canning jar in my refrigerator for when I want to add a little bacon flavor to something.
