bakin' in the oven

I had to cook some bacon but didn't look forward to the hovering over it. So I looked up how to do it in the oven.

Foil-covered pan, cold oven, then turn it up to 375, twenty five or thirty minutes if you want it crunchy. A very easy cleanup, and I can use this method when I won't be needing the bacon fat, which tends to last me a while. So much better.


  1. A friend of mine used to cook bacon in the oven and it came out kind of greasy. Did you remove it from its fat right away, put it on paper towels or something?

    1. That's just what I do, Gretchen. I was thinking it would be good if I laid it on a rack and let the grease drip, but we'll see.

  2. The smell of bacon does linger, doesn't it?
