Cooking Bacon In The Oven

1. Preheat your oven to 400 F.  
2. Get a large baking sheet and line it with foil. 
3. Put the bacon on the sheet and stick it in the oven. 
4. Cook the bacon in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes until it’s crispy and golden-brown.  
 
It’s that simple. 
 
Cooking bacon in the oven ensures it’s evenly cooked. And if you need to cook a lot of bacon, this is the answer to your prayers. No grease spatters on your stove top means an easy clean-up as well! 
 
Some folks prefer to preheat their ovens to 375 F or start with a cold oven. You can also place an oven-safe rack on top of the foil and put the bacon strips on it, enabling the fat to drip off the bacon. 
 

How To Cook Bacon In The Microwave

Short on time and seeking an alternative to cooking bacon in the oven? Just line a microwave-safe plate with 2 or 3 paper towels and lay down the bacon strips. Cover them with another paper towel. Then microwave on high for about 4 to 6 minutes.
