How to Cook Bacon in the Oven
The crispiest oven-baked bacon!
  • 12 thick cut slices of bacon (or whatever will fit on your baking sheet)
  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Line cookie sheet with aluminum foil
  3. Spread 12 slices of bacon evenly on cookie sheet. Slide sheet into oven.
  4. Time to cook varies on the actual temp of your oven and the thickness of the bacon. I wait until I can smell the bacon (you will all of a sudden notice a strong bacon scent in your kitchen). Then I check on it every 5 minutes after that. Take it out when it looks like it's Almost cooked the way you like it. It will finish cooking as it sits on the paper towels.
  5. Remove from oven and using tongs lay bacon out on a paper towel lined plate to soak up the grease. This allows the bacon to finish cooking and cooling.
  6. Leave foil lined pan out too cool. Once grease solidifies remove the foil and toss.
