I have a confession. I burn bacon. Like bad. Every.Single.Time.
Also I feel stupid sharing this with you as it is so incredibly mundane but it was transformed my life so here it is.
A while back on Pinterest I saw a post about making bacon in the oven. I stored the information in the back of my brain for the next time I made bacon. All I want to know is why didn’t someone tell me sooner?!
My husband loves this new development for a number of reasons. First we no longer have burnt bacon. Second our bacon is cooked near perfectly every time. Third we eat a lot more bacon because I am no longer afraid of ruining it. Fourth there is no mess all over the stove from bacon splatter.
All around everyone is please.
So the next time you have brunch remember this simple trick so you don’t have to stand on the stove and monitor splattering bacon. Just trust me on this one ok?
No more thinking, worrying, watching, etc. Just set a timer, sip your coffee, and enjoy.
Our favorite way to enjoy bacon? In BLTs. Throw the bacon in the oven, toast the bread, slice the tomatoes, tear the lettuce and in no time dinner is on the stove with hardly any mess.
So much win.
(also I feel SO dumb writing this out as a recipe but here you go)
Bacon (in the oven) (makes one pound)
1 lb thick sliced bacon
Lay out the bacon on a sheet pan/rimmed cookie sheet. Place the bacon in the cold oven. Turn the oven on to 350 and set the timer for 15 minutes. At 15 minutes remove the pan from the oven and flip the bacon. Place back in the oven for another 3-5 minutes depending on your desired level of crispiness. Remove from the oven and place the bacon on a paper towel lined plate to drain. Enjoy.
