Bacon. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
G and I both love bacon. It is not something that we fix often, because it could easily become an addiction!!!!! LOL
I stocked up on bacon recently when I found a great sale. It is in the freezer and will be used sporadically to calm our desires!
OK, I know I may be slow - but I just recently discovered the joys and wonders of cooking bacon in the oven.
No more grease stained clothes. No more splatter filled stove. No more messes. No more pans to clean. It is a wonder for sure!!!!!!
The other things I love is that their is little shrinkage and NO curling at all with the bacon. Just nice straight lovely bacon.
Heat the oven to 400*. Line a baking pan that has a lip (sides) with heavy duty aluminum foil. Make sure that foil goes up each side of the pan so as to contain the bacon grease and have no mess.
Lay you bacon out on foil - it's ok of sides touch. Bake 10 - 20 minutes depending on the crispness you desire. The above picture is crispy bacon and that was 20 minutes.
When done - remove bacon and place on paper towels to drain. I did 2 pans full, using the same foil and leaving grease till done.
You can then make a small lip or trough on one corner of the foil - to simply pour that beautiful bacon grease in your grease jar! There are so many uses for bacon grease in our world!!!!
Remove the foil and toss - no need to even clean the pan (if you didn't puncture foil).
Easy-peasy - perfect bacon!!
I will never fry bacon again!!!!!! This was life changing for me - LOL. It takes so little to amaze me an make me happy!
Have you ever tried this method?
I think you will be surprised.
