Roasted Bacon

Roasted Bacon

Why, oh why did it take me so long to roast bacon in the oven? I finally tried it about a year ago and can’t believe it took me so long. It’s seriously the easiest way to cook bacon! Not only is it effortless, but it’s also less messy. I also love that I can cook a whole package in one baking tray and that the bacon cooks evenly. This has been my go-to method of cooking bacon for a while and I prefer it overcooking it on the stovetop.

Place into the oven and bake for 15 minutes then carefully flip over, if needed, and continue to cook for 5 minutes, or until the bacon is evenly cooked and crispy. Place on paper towels to soak up the excess grease. Serve and enjoy.

  1. For even less mess, I put mine on a pan just as you did but cook it in the grill which is already dirty on the inside.

  2. I never thought of this! Sadly, though, our bacon is limited since my dearly beloved’s triple bypass. I think I’ll just sniff the pictures in your post for a while…

  3. 5 stars
    I discovered this about 2 years ago and am so thrilled with the way bacon turns out. No more splatters on my clothes!

  4. i learned about baking bacon when we would have to prepare oodles of it for sunday brunch at the restaurant–it really is an awesome method and i haven’t used anything else since!

  5. They don’t look like they’ve shrunk, don’t they? I love bacon and I hate that they shrivel. Anyway, thank you so much for sharing this.
