This couldn’t be easier! I was talking with a girlfriend of mine about how to bake bacon. Yes, us Southern girls do have entire conversations about bacon! 😉 She told me this is what she does!
Line a cookie sheet with foil coming up on the sides so the grease is easier to clean up. Line the pan with strips of bacon. Place the sheet into your cold oven. Then set the oven to 400 and timer to about 18-20 minutes. That’s it! Mine only took about 18 minutes so watch it closely the last few minutes to make sure it doesn’t burn.
On a plate do layers of multiple paper towels to soak up the grease. You can also lay a rack on the cookie sheet to keep the bacon out of the grease while it cooks. Once your bacon has cooled use the paper towels to soak up the left over grease in the tinfoil wrapped pan and discard the paper towels and foil. No grease splatter and easy clean up!
