Keeping Bacon From Curling

October 21, 2008

Several pieces of backing laying flat while sizzling in frying panTo keep bacon from curling you can put it the oven. Line foil on a cookie sheet. Lay bacon slices one at a time next to each other on sheet. Put into a 350 degree F oven and bake till done. Keep an eye on it so you can take it out according to how you like it cooked. Soft or crisp.

Drain the grease before you take the bacon off. Bacon usually sticks a bit to the foil but is not hard to get off. Draining makes it easier for clean up. Just lift the foil off and throw away. My bacon has never curled using this method and does not take very long. Another bonus is that there is no splattering from the frying pan.

Source: I got this idea to put bacon in the oven when I worked in the elementary school kitchen. Everything was baked. This was years ago and now I am finding this tip on the food network.
