How to cook Perfect Bacon Every time
Cooking bacon on the stovetop is pain, the grease splatters, it seems as though it takes forever. Here’s a great tip that I picked up while working in a restaurant as a teen to make perfectly cooked, bacon every time, with no messy clean-up
First, preheat the oven to 400F
While it is preheating, place a sheet of parchment paper on a large cookie sheet (with minimum of 1 inch sides). If you don’t have parchment paper you can line the cookie sheet with tin foil instead.
Lay out the bacon in strips close together, but not overlapping. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until bacon is perfectly browned to your liking.
Generally I tip the pan gently to allow the fat to drain off into a ceramic coffee mug (reserved for later use!). Immediately place the hot bacon onto paper towels to drain off any residual grease.
Let the pans cool, toss out the parchment paper or tin foil and voila, Mess Free, Perfectly cooked bacon. This works great if you want quick breakfasts in the morning, you can reheat the bacon in a small frying pan or in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Crisp and tasty!
