This easy method for cooking bacon in the oven will free you up to focus on other kitchen tasks, and it produces crisp, evenly cooked bacon every time!
This recipe scales up or down to make as much as you need. 1 pound is an example amount.
I like reserving the excess bacon fat to use for other cooking applications (especially since it can’t be poured down the drain). After the bacon fat has cooled slightly but before it solidifies, pour into a small airtight storage container. Store in the refrigerator and use to cook eggs, sauté veggies and pan fry meat!
