Who doesn't love bacon?
Y'all. That's obviously a trick question.
Ok, ok, fine. I guess there's a chance that some bacon nay-sayers exist out there. Or some vegetarians. Both acceptable. But let's be real . . . them anti-bacon-eaters are in the serious minority.
To me . . .
So today, if you're like me, I'm here to show you how to make bacon happen more easily in your life. Perhaps the MOST easy way possible. (Aside from, ya know, buying that microwaveable crap, or those bits that come in a plastic container which you sure-as-well know aren't 100% real bonafide bacon. I rest my case.)
Folks, you gotta BAKE YOUR BACON!
It's as easy as one, two, three.
Buy some bacon, whatever kind suits your fancy. Make sure it's the raw stuff. Place bacon on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. But seriously, don't forget the foil. There is mess to be had here if you skip it. You'll thank me later.
Put the bacon in the unheated oven (as in COLD oven!) and then turn on the oven, raising the temp to 400*F. Bake for 17 to 20 minutes, or until they look as crispy as you like. (Thicker bacon obvi needs more time.)
Remove the bacon pan from oven and then move the strips of bacon with a spatula or tongs onto a plate lined with paper towel to tackle some of that grease. If you're a fan of all that extra bacon grease left behind on your baking sheet, go ahead and pour it off into a glass container for later use. Otherwise, discard . . . and not down the drain!
Snap. Crackle. Pop. Sizzle.
