How to Bake Bacon

Simple Tip to Try: Cook Bacon in the Oven

A couple of years ago I watched the Barefoot Contessa roast bacon in the oven. She was making a BLT and didn't need the bacon fat. I had never thought to bake bacon, and the idea has changed my life! Now, I roast bacon all the time. It's an easy, convenient, and splatter-free way to cook it. Here's what you do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C. Cover a large cookie sheet with baking paper or foil.
  2. Place the raw bacon in a row on the baking paper.
  3. Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes until bacon is crisp and cooked.
  4. Remove bacon to paper towel lined plates, pat dry, and use however you want.

Do you ever cook bacon in the oven?
