Crispy Oven Baked Bacon Ingredients
- 12 slices bacon (thin or thick cut)
Bacon in the Oven Directions
Preheat oven and add your bacon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil in order to catch the grease for easy clean up. Line each bacon slice on the baking sheet from end to end. Leave about 1/8 to 1/4 inch spacing in between each slice to allow for caramelization. Option to use parchment paper; however, this will require extra clean up if the bacon fat gets under the baking sheet.
Bake bacon in the sheet pan at 400 degrees for 14-15 minutes. May take less time if using a thin cut bacon. Adjust by a few minutes until bacon is your desired level of crispiness. Remove from the oven and place cooked bacon strips on a paper towel lined plate to soak up extra oil or a cooling rack. Save bacon grease to use as a cooking oil.
