Crispy bacon is one of my favorites – if it’s cooked right. However, I never liked cooking bacon as the fat always seemed to love my face! I considered wearing a full face mask just to cook crispy bacon. Thus, I found out a method of cooking crispy bacon – oven baked!
A new way to cook crispy bacon, oven baked!
I headed over to the supermarket and bought thick bacon strips and turkey bacon. Excited, I went home and prepared the half sheet pan and bacon rack. After covering the half sheet pan with pre cut parchment paper so that I can catch the fat and use it to create gravy. I placed the bacon rack on top of it and laid the bacon strips. I also covered the bacon with parchment paper to avoid splatter and absorb the extra grease.
I set the oven temperature to 400 degrees F and set the timer for about 20-30 minutes. As the crispy bacon cooked in the oven, I prepared some toast and scrambled eggs. I checked it after 15 minutes — looks good!
You know what’s great about this method? I NEVER flipped the bacon! No more oil splatter, no lingering bacon smell, no oily gas range or pans to clean – just crispy, fat-free bacon to enjoy!
Now, my family and I have bacon every day for breakfast. I can cook bacon while taking a shower or helping the children prepare for school. Cleaning the bacon racks and pan are also easy. I just soaked the bacon pan and rack in warm water and dish washing liquid for about 2 hours and hand wash them later on – no sweat! I even have some crispy bacon bits saved up for salads, soups, and other dishes.
Why don’t you try cooking crispy bacon in the oven? I assure you, they’re the best!
