Get ready for the ultimate bacon experience with our oven-baking bacon method! No more flipping or greasy messes - just perfectly cooked, flat bacon every time. And the best part? You can use it to make all kinds of delicious treats like jerky, dried fruits, and crispy fries!
1. Preheat oven to 400° F and ensure that your oven shelf is in the center of your oven (not too high or too low).
2. Place bacon slices in a single layer directly on the rack, ensuring that slices do not overlap each other. They can be spaced very closely together.
3. For chewy bacon, bake 10-12 minutes or until desired level of cooking is achieved. Crispier bacon can take 15-17 minutes. Watch your bacon carefully to ensure it doesn’t overcook.
4. Once the bacon has reached your desired level of crispiness, remove immediately.
