DIRECTIONS

  • Oil not needed, only for a second ingredient so it would post.
  • Arrange slices in rows, across pans with fat edges slightly overlapping lean edges.
  • Bake 375 degrees without turning 20-25 minutes (depending on thickness) until bacon is slightly crisp.
  • I have been draining the grease and flipping the bacon, then back in the oven for 5 minutes or so.
  • Watch closely.
  • DO NOT OVERCOOK.
  • Drain or skim off excess fat at needed.
  • Drain thoroughly on paper towels.
  • For those with a convection oven use 325 degrees 20-25 minutes.
  • The longer you bake after 20 minutes the greater the risk of producing a dry, burnt piece of bacon.
