Hang around our house long enough and you'll learn that a Saturday morning without bacon is like a day without sunshine. Despite years of being a bacon-cooking-failure, Jen at Balancing Beauty & Bedlam introduced me to baking bacon in the oven. No more grease splatters -- perfect bacon every time. I've tinkered with the recipe a little bit and here is what works for me.
1. Line a large jelly roll pan with foil (make sure the seams are folded and pinched well if you have to use two sheets of foil to cover your pan).
2. Place bacon on the pan in a single layer without overlapping the strips.
3. Put pan in a cold oven. Turn the oven on to 375 degrees. (I know, a photo of uncooked bacon is far from appetizing, but just to give you a visual...)
4. When the oven if fully preheated, start to watch the bacon. Cook to desired crispness and remove from pan. Place on paper towels to collect the extra grease. Cleanup is a breeze -- toss the foil in the trash & put the pan back in the cabinet!
