Cook Bacon In Oven

Crisp, flat bacon. Can make a lot at one time. There is less mess and you can do other things while the bacon is in the oven. The bacon gets really crispy with the grease poured off and stays flat.



  • 1 lb. bacon, or more
  • jelly roll pan
  • parchment paper


Preheat oven 450 degrees F. Place parchment paper on pan. Place slices of bacon on pan and place in oven and bake for about 5 minutes. Open oven and pour off bacon grease into a waiting fry pan for eggs or into a grease jar for use later for cooking. From that point on turn bacon slices over with tongs and bake at 3 minute intervals, more or less. Check bacon and pour off grease and flip till desired doneness.

I find it less messy cooking it in a skillet. When I cook it in the oven the grease spatters and I'd rather wash a skillet than an oven. Just me.

For superior oven cooked bacon, DON'T PRE-HEAT the oven. Place thick strips of bacon on a rack, place in oven. Turn oven to 360 degrees F.
