How to Cook Bacon in the Oven
A complete guide to making bacon in the oven. Please reference the post for complete directions and timetables for making different thicknesses of bacon.
Servings: 12 strips
- 12 slices thick cut bacon Applewood smoked is my favorite
Note about using paper towels: bacon is super greasy and can ruin your kitchen towels with grease. If you don't use paper towels, some good alternatives are:
- a dedicated grease towel ( keeping in mind washing this towel does pose some hazards to your plumbing)
- a paper grocery bag - still disposable but at least giving something a second life before disposing
- a metal rack - let the grease drop off of the bacon instead of being sopped up by something absorbent
