This is more like an easy quick tip than a recipe. But it’s my favorite way to make bacon. Have you baked your bacon in the oven before? What are you waiting for?
Before I tell you my one little trick.. did you know? Crazy! Test it out and have nice full bacon strips.
All you have to do is turn the oven to 400 degrees, line a baking sheet with tin foil (for easy clean up). Then line your bacon in a single layer and put into the oven. You don’t even have to wait for it to be fully heated to 400 degrees.
Cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of your bacon. You can use tongs to pick them up and set on paper towels for the grease. Then roll up your tin foil and toss it. And that is it. No more splashing grease in your face and on your clothes. (oh is that just me?)
Use this method for a couple of amazing recipes:
I use a broiler pan and line the bottom with foil for easy clean up. But the slotted top doesn’t fit that well in the dishwasher so I’m going to try this method! Thanks for Sharing!
Doesn’t the grease pop all over the oven.
I was wondering the same….will the grease splatter all over the oven?
It sure does! And makes the most wonderful smell as its cooking. I’ve not found the grease spatter to be a problem, though, it cooks off the sides of the oven quickly and I haven’t found residue.
I haven’t had any issues with that!
I’m impressed by the details that you have here. Thank you for sharing it
My aunt cooks / bakes hamburgers and sausage in the oven using a rack so that the grease drips. Another friend also taught me how to boil ground beef instead of frying it when cooking spaghetti and tacos.

Isn’t this just the BEST way t cook bacon?!?!? One little tip that my husband thought up (I wish I could say I thought up this idea, but it wouldn’t be true….) is to place the bacon on a metal cooling rack (like the one you cool cookies on) on top of the tin-foiled baking sheet. That way the bacon drippings drip onto the tin-foil, but your bacon doesn’t sit in the drippings. It works great!

I use parchment paper with the rack. The paper seems to be less hard on the cookie sheet. After it is cooled I peel it off and it actually still looks clean. I do wash it anyway!
