My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Fabulous Food Friday #69


Fabulous Food Friday #69

Not really a recipe, but I have been wanting to share how I cook my bacon slices for a while now. I've been doing it for years and love how I don't have to clean off my grease splatter stove top after wards.

Oven Baked Bacon
Preheat oven to 400ยบ. Wrap the inside of cookie sheet with foil. Place a wire cooling rack on top. *Collapse the legs if it has them.* Place 1 lb bacon over the rack, slightly overlapping each piece to make room for the whole pan. Cook for about 15 minutes. The bacon will start to shrink a little. Take out of the oven and turn each slice over. Cook for another 15-20 minutes or until browned and lightly crispy. Depending on how you like your bacon cooked adjust your cooking time. Drain bacon on a paper towel and serve.


  1. How funny- Becky Higgens has a very similar post on her blog! Can't ever learn too much about bacon! My problem is, even when I wrap my cookie sheet in foil, it still leaks through and I have to clean it anyway! Any thoughts? I've double lined it before and that doesn't seem to help!

  2. I came across your blog via the Tasty Kitchen website. Your blog looks great! Anyways, I just wanted to say hi. I've never made bacon in the oven, but I really should try it, because I hate the mess it makes on the stove. Too bad bacon has become SO expensive, or I'd make it more often.

    Your cookies look delicious, too!

  3. We have baked our bacon for years!! I LOVE it!! It cooks nice and even.
