Bacon - lots of people love this smoky, salty meat. However, different cooking methods can have some drawbacks. Pan frying bacon in a skillet requires somewhat constant attention and turning, and the bacon sits in its own fat. Microwaving bacon produces uneven results. The solution - bake your bacon!
- Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, then place a wire rack inside it.The rack elevates the bacon, so the grease drips away, and the foil allows for quick cleanup.
- Lay the bacon strips on the rack. Try to keep space between the strips.
- Bake at 400F for 15-20 minutes, until crisp, but not too dark.
- Move strips to a paper towel lined plate, add another paper towel on top of the bacon, let rest for five minutes, and enjoy! I'm using this batch in a Swiss and Bacon Dip, which is an easy, tasty appetizer.
