I used to hate making bacon, it left stove tops in such a mess, but this oven method has made my life so much easier. It really is easy to make your own crispy bacon at home, in a matter of minutes.
I would suggest making a few packs of bacon at the same time. Crispy bacon can be stored in the refrigerator and easily reheated within seconds, in a microwave.
Recipes to Make with Bacon
Turn on the oven on a low broil.
Cover the baking dish with a wire rack or foil, if you have a cooling rack, it works wonderful in this case.
Cook bacon on a low broil for about 20 minutes or until the bacon is crispy. Remove bacon form a baking sheet, serve or refrigerate the crispy bacon.
