Crispy Oven-Baked Bacon

I’ve discovered the secret to perfectly crispy bacon every time, without the splatter of grease all over the stovetop. Ready to have your mind blown?

Try baking it in the oven.

That’s right. It’s simple as popping it into the oven and letting that bad boy work it’s magic. The bacon gets added to a cold oven to start, but comes out crispy and golden and delicious minutes later.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!



  • 1 package of your favorite bacon


  1. Line a baking sheet with tin foil. Evenly spread the bacon out so that it doesn’t touch other pieces. Place the tray into a cold oven.

  2. Turn the oven up to 400 degrees. Check on the bacon after about 10 minutes, just to get an idea of how far along it is. You’ll want to continue cooking until it’s nice and golden, but not burnt. Just keep an eye on it as it can quickly go from the desired doneness to overly burnt!

  3. Transfer the bacon slices to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb the excess grease.

  4. Enjoy warm with your favorite breakfast (or lunch or dinner)!
