I know this seems simple enough, but surprisingly, many people don’t know about this method for cooking bacon. Oven roasting the bacon is quick, easy, and produces a nice crunchy evenly cooked bacon slice everytime. I promise you that once you do this, you’ll never scorch your poor little hands frying bacon in a pan ever again! And best of all, there’s no greasy messy stove top to clean when you’re done.
Oven Roasted Bacon
- 1 pound thick cut bacon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper or aluminmum foil. Lay out strips of bacon on pan side by side. Bake in oven for about 15 – 20 minutes until the bacon is nice and crispy. Remove from oven, and drain bacon on paper towels to remove excess grease. Serve.
So, you can probably guess from the picture above where I’m going with this… crispy bacon = BLT! I don’t eat this sandwich a lot, but something about smelling that bacon cooking and knowing that I had some wonderful ripe pearl tomatoes in my fridge made me start thinking about how good a BLT would taste.
I like mine that plain, old fashioned way. Just 2 slices of lightly toasted white bread, laid out open faced, each with a dollop of Best Foods mayonaise spread on it. Then I line each slice with 3 slices of bacon. Put some tomatoes on one side, some lettuce on the other and press the 2 together. Delish!
Just try to tell me you don’t want one of these right now! Go ahead, make yourself one… it’s easy!
