Servings: 4 servings
Preheat the oven to 400° F.
Line a large baking sheet (or two) with parchment paper. I don’t recommend aluminum foil.
Place bacon strips on the sheet, do not over-crowd.
Bake for 16 to 20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the bacon. I cooked mine for 18 minutes.
Remove from oven and serve.
- The thick-cut bacon may need up to 20 minutes.
- I don’t recommend aluminum foil as the bacon tends to stick to it.
- Save the bacon grease and use it in place of oil in other dishes.
