Bacon, oven fried

#355       Comment on this recipe.


    Use a large, rimmed baking sheet, such as a jelly-roll pan, that is shallow enough to promote browning, yet tall enough (at least 3/4-inch in height) to contain the rendered bacon fat.

    If cooking more than one tray of bacon, exchange their oven positions once about halfway through the cooking process.


  1. 12 slices bacon, thin or thick-cut


  1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 400°F.
  2. Arrange bacon slices in a large jelly-roll pan or other shallow baking pan.
  3. Roast until fat begins to render, 5 to 6 minutes; rotate pan front-to-back.
  4. Continue roasting until is crisp and brown, 5 to 6 minutes longer for thin-sliced bacon, 8 to 10 minutes for thick-cut bacon.
  5. Transfer with tongs to paper towel-lined plate, blot, and serve.
