best bacon

Why is this the Best Bacon?
Is it because there is no grease spatter all over my stove top?  Is it because my family can put away an entire pound in one sitting?  Is it because my (not always in love with food-prep) husband makes it every weekend without a word or finger lifted from moi?  Perhaps a combination of all these things.

There is no better way to make bacon for a crowd than in the oven. No muss - no fuss. If you are not already preparing your bacon this way - you must try it!

1 - Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

2 - Lay bacon strips on a rimmed baking sheet, side-by-side.

3 - Bake 12-15 minutes for thin-cut, 15-18 for thick.

4 - Drain on paper towels or paper bags.

5 - If any slices are left over, cool and wrap in plastic wrap for future use.  (Can freeze in individual portions, say 2 slices)

Tip:  Even if you are horrified at the thought of consuming one pound of bacon - please don't make less than that at a time!  The leftovers are perfect for weekday breakfast sandwiches, burgers or for crumbling on top of your soup or salad.
