So, I have a confession... I love bacon.
Bacon is about the best thing on this earth for me... besides coffee... but if I could eat bacon at every meal, every day of my life... (AND NOT have a coronary) I probably would.
Here's the thing. I HATE when it splatters on me, and I have way to many bacon grease burns to even go into.
I have friends who have put bacon in the over to cook it. I never tried. WHY? I likes my bacon crunchy and very well done and I just couldn't understand how it could get that yummo in the oven.
Then, I tried to make it on my own. EPIC FAIL. I put the bacon onto a pan and well.... when it was done it stuck to the pan. I wanted to try it, so I had to use my finger nails and chip if off the pan.
So then... I figured it out... what I needed. Why didn't I think of that first! So I set out to make my bacon.
This specific blog post is for my sweet and loving brother in law, Scott. I wanted to show him that YES... bacon in the over is just as good... OR BETTER than on the stove top.
Bacon, bacon, and wait... more bacon (I tend to use the Farmland low sodium but this time I had the thick stuff)
Yep. That is it. NO special sauce, pepper... or anything. Just your bacon and parchment paper.
Heat your oven to 400 degrees
Place a sheet of parchment paper on the baking pan (with sides)
Place bacon on top of parchment paper
Once oven is heated, place pan in the oven and bake for 20 minutes
Remove bacon and let cook on paper towels.
Eat the damn bacon.
That is it. YUMMO. Have a fantastic Wednesday!!
