Easy Tip for Cooking Crispy Bacon in the Oven
Check out my favorite way to make perfect bacon every time! 🥓
Do you like to cook bacon for a crowd and dislike standing in front of a skillet getting splattered with grease every 5 seconds?! It’s not my favorite task especially when my hungry family is waiting for breakfast! There is a better, more convenient way especially if you’d like to make bacon for a crowd all at once.
Try this easy tip for cooking crispy bacon in the oven! I started using this method last year and have never gone back to the skillet if cooking a full pound of bacon. The key is to use an extra-large sheet pan with a rim and not overcrowd the bacon.

Hip Tip: You can even stack an oven-safe cooling rack on top of the pan to elevate the bacon and the grease will then drip off to the bottom.
Yummy perfect bacon every time!
I love that this is SO EASY. Bacon is my family’s favorite part of breakfast, and cooking it in the oven allows me to also focus on other aspects of the meal like cooking the eggs, toast, etc. Make sure to check on your bacon and cook until your desired crisp-ness. Bacon can vary in thickness so that may affect cook time slightly.
One thing I noticed if doing this often. Sometimes bacon does splatter a little, so make sure to check the bottom of your oven once cooled to see if it needs to be wiped down. This will help avoid any grease smoking for future use.
