You’ll never cook bacon any other way once you make oven bacon!
It’s honestly the best way for a few reasons:
- Consistently cooked bacon pieces
- Easy clean up
- Flat bacon — no curled up pieces that get all bunched up.
We started cooking bacon in the oven a few years ago. I’m not even sure how it came about, I just remember my husband doing it and we’ve never gone back to pan cooked bacon.
It works BEST with a thick cut bacon. Thin slices seem to burn quickly so you have to be more diligent in watching the oven.
With thick cut bacon you can *almost* set it and forget it.
