How to Cook Bacon in the Oven
by DrDan at 101 Cooking for Two October-8-2011

Love bacon? Hate the mess? Here's the simple, easy, no work, no mess method to have that most unhealthy of treats. Just slam it into the oven. Place on a lined pan and bake at 400 until done to your taste.

  • 9-10 slices Bacon of your choice
  • 1 large sheet aluminum foil (heavy duty preferred)
1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees convection. Or start with a cold oven and add a few minutes.
2) Line a sheet pan with a large sheet of aluminum foil (heavy duty preferred) and turn up edges. Place bacon on sheet close together but not touching. (9-10 pieces).
3) Place in middle of over. Go do something else for 18 minutes and come back. Time will vary with thickness of the bacon and your taste. It is done when it looks done. I like my bacon very crispy so I use 20-22 minutes with thick bacon.
4) Drain on paper towels and pat "dry" with another paper towel.
