Compared to other methods like a skillet on the stovetop or microwaving, baking bacon in the oven lets you simultaneously cook more slices, without supervision or greasy splatters. Each bacon slice is evenly cooked and shatteringly crisp.
- 8 slices bacon (Note 1)
- Prepare: Position oven rack in center of oven, and preheat to 400 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, and fit oven-safe rack on top (Note 2).
- Bake: Lay out bacon strips in single layer on rack, close together but not touching. Bake uncovered at 400 F until bacon is crispy, 15 to 20 minutes, depending on bacon thickness and preferred doneness (Note 3).
- Serve: Use tongs to transfer bacon slices to paper towel lined plate to drain. Serve while hot (Note 4).
