Apparently I have been doing it wrong my whole adult life! Pan frying bacon. Dodging the spatters, getting hot bacon grease popped into my eye (true story) then pouring the hot grease into a cut up pop can to dispose of. Yeah. Such fun. All a part of my fun Sunday mornings.
Then I came across a recipe, well more like a method for baking bacon. Huh? And miss all the aforementioned fun? I think I can make a sacrifice.
Place foil (I prefer parchment) on a sturdy cookie sheet. Then lay out the bacon neatly on the foil.
Place in a COLD oven and turn the oven on to 400′. The bacon is ready 17-20 minutes depending on how crunchy you like your bacon. Start watching at the 17 minute mark.
Then remove the bacon and place on a paper towel lined plate.
DONE! How easy is that?? And that is my AHA bacon moment.
The BEST part? While the bacon is baking away, I am toasting toast, scrambling and frying eggs ( because no one likes their eggs the same way in my house).
