I am not the biggest bacon fan in the world. I’ll eat it if it is on the table but I’ll always chose sausage links or patties when I make breakfast myself. So I was at a loss with what do with some leftover bacon I had from a pork chop recipe I tried. I remembered seeing a recipe for bacon baked in the oven in Christina Lanes’ Comfort and Joy cookbook and decided to try it for breakfast with my eggs.
OMG!! It was the best bacon I have ever had. It was crisp and well done. It would have been even crisper if I would have put it on a rack. It took about 12 minutes and I just cooked the eggs with the bacon for a very quick breakfast. Oh, another great thing about bacon made in the oven, it doesn’t splatter and you don’t have to flip.
Oven Baked Bacon
the amount of bacon you want to cook
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Arrange the bacon in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Don’t overlap it or it will stick together and you won’t ever get it apart. Bake it for about 12 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
