Baked Bacon

For the juiciest, most tender, delicious bacon you have to bake it! Oh! And it is super easy!

Can you tell I’m passionate and excited about this? :D

This is delicious stuff! It is super easy. I’m talking, much easier than babysitting it over a stove top and getting splattered by it.

Now, save yourself some elbow grease and line your rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. You can use aluminum foil but I have read and heard that it is not good for you, as it can leach bad stuff into your food. I get a twenty-five foot roll at Dollar Tree for a dollar. I don’t know how good that is but it is a good way to try parchment paper to see if you like it. I have found that I love it!

Baking Bacon ~ Lifeofjoy.meThis is one package of thick cut bacon; I guess it was about one and a half pounds, I don’t remember exactly and the trash has already been taken out of the house, so that’s as close as we’re getting on the amount. ;)

As you can see, I flip and rotate the pieces so that they fit nicely onto the sheet pan. Sometimes one end is smaller than the other and so I situate them so that there’s a narrow part on the same side of the pan as a thicker piece beside it. Here you can see what I mean, although the pan is not full. (We did this one last week and had too many pieces for one pan but not enough for two full pans.)Bacon ~ Lifeofjoy.meNext you put the pans in the oven and turn it on 375ºfarenheight. I have been told that there is something really good about putting it into a cold oven but do not know the reason or paid attention to why yet.

Set a timer for ten minutes, at which point you will check the bacon and rotate the pans. You may want to flip a few pieces but I don’t usually.

Set the timer for five minutes. Check bacon for desired crispiness.

I usually bake mine for about twenty minutes total.

 Note:  If you are using thin bacon, I’d rotate the pans at about  eight minutes  and keep a close eye on it.

I hope you love this bacon as much as we do. Oh, if you failed to set a timer and your bacon got extremely well done, I encourage you to taste it anyway. Bacon is not cheap, so I ate the burned bacon . . . it wasn’t all that bad . . . honestly. ;)

Until next time, God bless,
