How to Cook Bacon in the Oven for the Perfect Crisp

Cooking bacon in an oven has its perks. There’s no oil splatter on your stovetop and you get to cook a full batch evenly at the same time. Here’s how to do it.

Tools You’ll Need:

  • 1 lb package of bacon
  • Metal sheet pan
  • Paper towels

Step 1: Arrange the bacon on a baking sheet. Overlap the lean edge of each slice with the fat edge of the next one.

Step 2: Preheat your oven to 400F. Place the pan in the uppermost rack to bake. After 12 minutes have passed, move the pan to the lower rack for an additional 12 to 13 minutes until the slices are golden brown and crispy.

Step 3: Remove the pan and let cool slightly. Place two to three paper towels on a plate. Move the strips from the sheet to the paper towels and let the excess grease soak in the towels. You can also blot the top with another towel.
