The Best Way to Make Bacon

This. Is. Amazing. I'm never cooking bacon any other way ever again. This is the best way to cook bacon.

What is it about bacon that makes people go nuts? Baconnaise, bacon donuts, bacon shirts and endless other crazy bacon ideas. But really, bacon is that good. Unfortunately the stovetop method of cooking bacon is messy and difficult to get the bacon cooked perfectly. I’ve been using the oven method of cooking bacon until I found this recipe. Once you use this you’ll never go back! This is the best way to make bacon.

What you need:


  1. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Put baking rack on top of baking sheet.
  2. Lay bacon on baking rack.
  3. Cover bacon with another layer of parchment paper over the bacon.
  4. Place another baking sheet on top.
  5. Bake for 17-20 minutes at 400 degrees.

    Do the baking sheets need to be rimmed? If they are rimmed, for the one you place on top, do you lay the flat bottom side on the bacon, or do you stack rim to rim so that there is air in between?

      In the video, the chef puts the second sheet on bottom side down. It looks as if it works like a bacon press preventing it from curling up as well as eliminating any grease splattering.
