I despise cooking bacon! What a yucky mess! I recently learned how to cook it in the oven! It is fast and does not cause all the grease splattering mess.
1. Lay bacon out in single layer on baking sheet pan.
2. Place in oven.
3. THEN, turn on oven to 400 degrees.
4. Cook for about 9-14 minutes (depends on how thick the bacon is cut).
5. Cooking longer, produces crispier bacon.
6. Remove from oven and place bacon on a plate covered with paper towels.
