The Best Bacon You'll Ever Make

I love bacon. I use it in a ton of recipes (see below). I've tried cooking it a ton of different ways, but this is what I have found to be the best way.

  • 1 pound of bacon
  1. Cover two baking sheets in aluminum foil
  2. Place bacon on foil
  3. Put sheets in COLD OVEN and turn to 400 degrees
  4. Cook for 20 minutes
  5. Remove from oven and place between paper towels
Now I like my bacon really, really crisp, almost burnt. If you don't, start checking around 10/15 minutes and cook to your desired consistency.

You can also put a cooling rack on top of the baking sheet so that the bacon fat drips off, but I find everything more delicious if the bacon cooks in the fat.
