Some of the world's best chefs bake bacon to free them for other work, keep kitchens cleaner, and cook bacon with an even browning. Baking bacon in the oven allows consistency, cooking larger batches evenly. And, it won't leave you jumping back from painful bacon grease splatters or scrubbing off your backsplash. This is an especially great bacon cooking method for households with children, where frying bacon can be a dangerous hazard. Baking bacon really limits grease fires and spills.
This quick video gives simple instructions for how to make bacon in the oven.
How to Bake Bacon
Preheat the oven to 375° F and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper (this is not necessary, but it makes cleaning upa snap). Lay the bacon, not overlapping, in the pan. Cook for 10 minutes or until you have baked bacon to your desired level of crispness.
