Ingredients

How to make it

  • Place heavy duty aluminum foil on a broiler tray.
  • Fold up all edges twice to make 1/2 inch walls to contain the grease.
  • Lay the slices alternatiing the ends to get more pieces on the tray.
  • See pic for laying strips of bacon.
  • Broiler tray should be placed on the rack in the middle of the oven.
  • This position has the bacon on the tray above the middle of the oven.
  • Bake for 40 minutes at 375.
  • Pull out the tray, turn all slices over, cook another 10 minutes. This is to give the underside some color.
  • I use a separate oven thermometer to make sure the temp. is correct.
  • If they look pretty as picture after the last 10 minutes, remove, place on paper towel and blot the excess grease.
  • Baked bacon is totally different in texture than frying.
  • Thick slices of good bacon are just outstanding. What a treat and it was very nice of the chef to tell me what they did to make their bacon taste so good.
  • They serve incredible food and staying there is a real treat. Hope you can get there some day. The McCallum House -Mendicino Ca.

    actually you turn the bacon over so the underside gets some color.

    I used to work in a cafeteria. We always baked our bacon in a convection oven. No need to turn it, that way.

    Ooooohhhh, as if I didn't eat enough bacon, now I am going to have to try this, I never thought of baking it. Some lovely streaky bacon would just go down a treat.
    Excellent recipe sir, thank you for your efforts.

    I love doing bacon in the oven - less cleanup, nice results, and you can cook more at once.

    I did the same thing after the first time I ate it at the B&B. Are you going to try the "bone pile", it is addicting. Best, JJ

    Got this one bookmarked. I just told my husband this morning that our 2-year-old "helps" me too much when I try to fry bacon, that I'd have to start microwaving - this will be much better!

    Alton Brown also recomends this method. I've been oven baking mine for a few years and I agree -it always comes out amazing!!! I use a wire rack that fits into my jelly roll pan and I cook it that way. It makes it a little bit healthier since the grease has a place to fall away from the bacon. I also crack some black pepper onto the bacon before baking and that adds a nice flavor. I highly recommend this recipe!!

    I hate frying bacon - as delicious as it is when done. This is a great alternative. Thanks! And PS - fantastic pictures!

    I would say so. I have cooked it this way many times, always perfect, of course. Most likely temperature was the fault. Bacon by nature is fatty. But then it wouldn't have the wonderful sensory explosive taste that only bacon has. Too lean, its tough. Try again and let me know. JJ

    I tried this a couple years ago and it smoked up my house... I don't remember what temp I had it on, it took days for the smell to go away... Do you think it was the bacon... to fatty?
