for years & years i have always made my bacon on the stove-top… patiently watching, flipping, draining the fat & waiting for the perfect strip of bacon to accompany my breakfast and some leftovers to add a salad or soup later on. it’s not easy to tend to bacon cooking & the rest of breakfast.
… but last weekend that all changed when a dear friend visiting was making delicious croissant bacon, egg & cheese sandwiches and started by lining a baking sheet with foil, lining up the bacon and popping it in the oven! by the time the sandwiches were ready to be made, the bacon was done & looked and tasted AMAZING!
5 reasons to bake your bacon…
it was so stickin’ simple!
clean-up was a BREEZE
no oil splatters
make the rest of breakfast without overly tending to the delicious bacon
… because apparently everyone else is doing it! 🙂
- line a baking sheet with foil & pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees
- lay the bacon on the foil (this was my second pan of bacon… when I got the genius idea to, “hey! i should blog about this!”
- place the bacon in the oven for 15-20 minutes. nearing the end, check every minute or so, it doesn’t take long for bacon to go from almost to perfect!
- if you have extra thick bacon like we have from the local butcher, flip the bacon and bakedfor an extra few minutes!
bacon in the oven… a new regular routine on the weekends in our home! add it to yours!!
