Description

A step-by-step guide to making bacon in the oven, how to keep your oven door clean, and how to save the bacon grease!

Ingredients

  • 8 slices Bacon

Preparation

See notes to find out a different technique to keep your oven completely clean while cooking bacon in the oven!

Lay raw bacon out on a sheet pan. Place in the middle of the oven and turn oven on to 400ºF. Cook bacon until crisp, about 30 minutes (or until done to your liking). Remove from the oven and drain bacon on a plate lined with paper towels.

Notes:
• You can line your baking sheet with a wire rack, parchment paper, or foil. The parchment paper and foil will aid with cleanup and the wire rack will help you avoid draining on paper towels.
• Save the bacon grease in a glass jar with a lid. Using a sieve, strain the solid pieces from the bacon grease and store in the refrigerator.
• Store leftover bacon in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
• To freeze cooked bacon, ook as much bacon as you like according to the above directions and let cool. Line a sheet pan with wax paper or parchment paper and place the bacon on the pan in a single layer. Continue with the paper and a layer of bacon up to 3 thick. Place in the freezer and freeze for 2 hours. Transfer the frozen bacon to a freezer bag or container and keep frozen for up to 3 months. To serve, microwave for 30 seconds and serve.
• I have a massive trick to keeping the bacon from popping grease all over your oven! If you are a conservationist, I’m sorry. I bought a shiny new oven and I did not want to mess it up with bacon grease like my old oven. So this is what I do now.
I place the bacon on the baking sheet and then I cover the bacon with parchment paper. I cook the bacon at 350ºF until it is crispy. This takes about 30–40 minutes at 350ºF. I’ve been doing this for over a month and my oven is still spotless!
