How To Make Bacon In The Oven: Easy Recipe

I wanted to share this easy recipe showing you how to make bacon in the oven. This is actually my preferred way of cooking bacon. Whenever I try to make bacon in a pan, my entire kitchen turns in to a grease trap and my clothes get ruined. I don’t like to mess around with my fashion, people!!!

How To Make Bacon In The Oven

Cooking bacon in the oven is a cleaner way to make it – trust me!! Less mess and all the taste. You can get those pieces as crispy as you want them, too.

There are no limits! I am not ruining any of the fun. It will be the same glorious experience that you are used to – maybe even better?? Who knows!

A lot of my friends use a bacon rack which I currently don’t own but am looking into. Apparently, it takes away all the excess grease and releases it from the bacon pieces right onto the pan. BLISS!

I think I am going to get one. In the video below, I don’t use one though. So, don’t worry if you don’t have one yet either. You can be old school and not fancy like me. LOL!

How To Make Bacon In The Oven – Instructions For People Who Hate Video

Preheat oven 400 degrees. Line a pan with aluminum foil and place it on the pan – it’s ok if they are close.  Bake for 10-20 minutes depending on how crispy you want it.

No salt or oil is needed! Don’t turn the bacon, just leave it alone. Literally…you don’t need to do anything!!! 

When you are happy with “crispy factor”, remove from heat and take pieces of bacon and place on a plate lined with paper towels. This will remove excess grease.

Pat dry with more paper towels. Serve.

Do you cook your bacon in the oven? Do you microwave it? Or are you someone who really likes to use a pan? I would love to know!
