Cooking bacon in the oven is the best way to make a large batch of crispy, perfectly cooked bacon. It also prevents the messy grease splatter that comes from frying bacon on a stove top. With these easy tips, you can learn how to bake bacon in the oven!
Lay bacon strips in a single layer on the baking sheet. Because they will shrink as they cook, you can place the bacon slices close together, but don't overlap them. Bake until the bacon is crispy, about 15 - 20 minutes depending on its thickness.
Let the bacon slices cool on a paper towel-lined plate. Then, serve immediately, store in the fridge or freeze in a freezer ziplock bag.
