We love bacon …. I tell my dog and pretty much everyone who will listen that “the only thing better than bacon is …. more bacon.”
My favorite way to cook bacon is in the oven. It’s easy, less messy, and oh so yummy. In fact by baking bacon you can help keep those slices flat and evenly cooked.
We used thick cut applewood smoked bacon on this particular day. I baked it at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Flipping over after about 10 minutes and then again after about 7 or 8 minutes more. Bacon is fairly forgiving. I wouldn’t go over 400 degrees when baking and 325 would be the minimum. But you can adjust the temperature as needed and time accordingly if thicker or thinner sliced.
Give it a try next time you need some bacon cooked. In fact I have a habit of throwing the bacon in the oven on Sunday mornings before I hop in the shower; if you find it’s taking a little long to cook just bump up the temperature by about 25 degrees at a time and get sizzling.
