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 400º. 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.

    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!

    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!
