Quick Tip Tuesday - How to cook bacon in the oven!

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.
7. Voila! (Bacon looks a little strange, because it's turkey:)

I love cooking bacon in the oven. So much easier and less messy! I love to buy it in bulk and cook a bunch while I'm at it. Then I freeze it to use whenever I need a couple of slices.
