FOOD TRICK-Bacon in the Oven

bacon in the oven How Do I Cook Bacon in the Oven? (Cooking Bacon in Bulk)

I know this isn't a new trick, but I haven't tried it before. I wish I had done it earlier! It makes the bacon perfect! I usually don't enjoy eating bacon because the fat grosses me out especially when it's soggy and chewy... but this drains a ton of grease out and leaves the entire thing crispy! It was so good! 

I put it on broil at the very end and forgot about it so they got a little crisp, but otherwise about 25-30 minutes at 400 degrees worked perfectly for me! 


I used a broiling pan and lined the bottom pan with tin foil. You can also use a baking sheet with ridge and cooling rack.

Clean up was much easier when I  had to just fold the sides of the tin foil in!

    1. Yes! I rarely make bacon because it is such a big time consuming mess, but this works great! Thanks for reading!

  2. I have NEVER lined the bottom of the broiling pan--That is the best idea! Thanks! P.S. Can you tell I don't cook that much?

    1. It worked great! You can use parchment paper too I think. Thanks for stopping!

  3. I love bacon so much. Seriously. It's pathetic how much I love bacon. I will now have to try this, since draining off grease is a good thing (although I like mine a little "chewy", so I'll have to experiment.) And I especially like the foil underneath idea because we all know messy cleanups are the worst!

    1. Maybe you could take it out a little sooner so it isn't quite as crispy! It's worth a try! Good luck!

  4. First, I found you via UBC on FB. You were somewhere in the list but not the two above me. In any event, I'm glad that I did find you. I love the whole idea of this blog because I am constantly trying out the stuff on Pinterest and I love that you have this blog so I'm not the one who will be getting frustrated anymore! Short note - I tried some caramel apple slices that I saw on Pinterest. Yeah, no, didn't work. The caramel doesn't stick to the wet apple. I think they use trick photography. :p - Your bacon post. I've been doing this forever. My kids all started out working in restaurants and this is how they do their bacon, the kids came home and told me so I started it too. So much easier and less painful that stove top bacon.
    Great post. :)

    1. Thank you so much for the comment! It has been fun trying didn't Pinterest experiments! If you ever want to submit a project that you've tried, I do guest posts on the weekends! Can send your pics and original link to thepinterestexperiment@gmail.com :-) I saw those caramel slices in the apples! They looked way too scary to attempt! How would you even have a knife sharp enough to cut them like that? A laser?!? :-)
