I can’t fry bacon without thinking about my grandparents. They used to get up really, really early and cook a full breakfast every morning including eggs, biscuits, gravy and bacon. I remember waking up to the smells of freshly brewed coffee and a homemade meal just waiting to be devoured.
I love bacon and all the memories it holds, but I don’t love the mess that comes with frying it in a frying pan. If you’re like me and you love bacon, but hate the mess then I’ve got an amazingly simple solution: Oven-Fried Bacon. It’s true, you can fry your bacon in the oven with minimal mess and no standing around a hot stove flipping bacon. Yay and yay! Plus, it always comes out perfectly flat and crispy which makes for great BLTs or breakfast sandwiches.
How to Make Oven-Fried Bacon:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cover baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
Lay bacon flat and close together, but not touching.
Cook bacon for 15-18 minutes depending on how crispy you like it.
Place bacon on paper towels to absorb excess grease.
Enjoy your perfectly cooked bacon!
