She explained that the grease does not splatter like it does on the stove top and you can cook much more at one time and the bacon does not curl up in the oven.
Okay, I'm game.......the first time I tried it I used a broiler and laid the bacon on top of the rack. It cooked fast but was way too dry. I then placed it on a cookie sheet with aluminum foil on the bottom Amazingly it came out perfectly! I now cook bacon this way all the time......less mess to clean up and less time cooking.
Give it a try!
You will need:
Cookie sheet – with sides – do not use a flat cookie sheet
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with foil. Do not use a flat cookie sheet, use a sheet with sides. If you use a flat cookie sheet with no sides, as the bacon cooks it will drip all over your oven. Lay out bacon one strip at a time on the cookie sheet. Try to leave a little space between each piece or they will stick together. Place cookie sheet with bacon into the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until it is browned and crisp. Use a lesser time if you don't like crispy bacon. Drain on paper towels. Voila!
