BACON! How to prepare


After years of making bacon at home, I then found the best way to make it when I open a restaurant.  BAKE IT!

This is so easy and so much better than pan frying.

First step: Line a baking sheet with foil.  Set a cooling rack on top.


Place bacon on the pan.  Be sure not to let pieces touch, so they don’t stick together.


Put pan of bacon in a cold oven and then set oven for 350 degrees.


1 pound of bacon takes about 20 minutes.  Cook till preferred doneness.

Clean up is so easy.  Save the bacon grease in a pint jar with lid.  Same for future recipes.

Lift the foil off, throw away, and clean your pan.

I will never cook bacon in a pan again.

    Thanks David. Another thing you can do with this method is make a weave for a bacon top for a casserole or pie.
