how to cook perfect bacon

bacon is… the best. just the best. cooking it, however, can be a fiasco; messy, smoky, tricky to get right. but if you have a little bit of time, making perfect bacon can be a snap.

here is my recipe to cooking the most delicious, buttery, chewy, crispy, easy-to-make bacon you will ever have.

      perfect bacon 2

take a pound or so of your favourite bacon. i prefer a hardwood-smoked type with a medium thickness. preheat your oven to 375 degrees while you unpack the bacon.

perfect bacon close up

lay the strips out on a tin foil covered baking sheet. don’t overlap them.

perfect bacon before oven

put the bacon in the oven for 14 minutes. remove from the oven and quickly turn each slice of bacon over and put the baking sheet back in the oven for an additional 3-4 minutes.

perfect bacon on cooling rack

remove the bacon and transfer slices to a cooling rack with paper towel underneath. allow the bacon to harden for a minute or 2, pat with the paper towel if you wish to blot off the excess grease (personally that is my favourite part!). enjoy!
