Perfect Bacon

Today was a VERY busy day for us! We just got back from vacation yesterday and I was busy unpacking, cleaning out the van and grocery shopping. We came home to an empty fridge and needed to make a trip to Sam's. I am actually writing this from the van. on my phone as we drive home. (Sam's is an hour away from our house)

Anyways, I told you all of that to tell you that today is going to be a short blog. I wanted to blog about our vacation over the weekend, but I just dont have time today, sorry.

Instead, I am just giving you a quick cooking tip :)

My family LOVES bacon! Seriously, we probably go through about 3 pounds of bacon a week. (We really need to look into owning a farm!)

Until about 4 months ago I HATED cooking bacon! The time and mess that it took to cook it was not worth it in my opinion. 

UNTIL..... someone told me that bacon can be cooked in the oven. I was reluctant to try it honestly. I really couldn't see how baking bacon could possibly taste as good as frying it. Plus, I am really picky about my bacon. I like crispy bacon, no soggy bacon here. Yuck!

I decdied to give it a shot. It wouldn't kill me to try it once right?

I linded 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil and lined up bacon on it. 

I cooked it for 15-20 min at 375 degrees.

I pulled out the bacon and I was shocked at how perfect it was!!
It was probably the BEST bacon I have ever had in my life!

I will NEVER fry bacon again! This way is SO simple and produces the best tasting bacon!
Plus, there is almost no clean up time involved! Since the sheets are lined with bacon all of the grease stays on the aluminum foil and I just take the foil off and throw it away and all done!

  1. I have got to try this idea. I too hate the messy clean up of frying! Thanks Leslie.
