  • 1 large piece of foil
  • 1 baking sheet


  • 1 lbs sliced bacon


  • Prep: Start by preheating the oven to 400degrees F. Then, line a baking sheet or jelly roll pan (something with sides)with foil.
  • Proceed to arrange the bacon strips in a single layer on the lined pan. The bacon can be touching on the sides, but try not to overlap the pieces. As the bacon bakes they will shrink, but if they are overlapping that spot won't cook as crispy.
  • Bake: Continue to put the bacon in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until the desired level of crispness has been reached. I typically set a timer for 10 minutes, then I rotate my baking sheet in the oven to ensure all sides cook evenly.
  • Once baking is complete, transfer the bacon to a paper towel lined plate to help drain excess grease. Let the bacon cool for about 5minutes, then serve and enjoy!
