Bacon cooking tip

We eat a lot of bacon. I've always pan fried it until I started cooking it in the oven. Now unless I'm cooking homemade bacon bits ( I'll share that tip later), I always bake it. 

So, I thought I'd share my technique. 

Pre heat oven to 375 degrees.  These can take anywhere from 10-20 minutes to cook.  Depending on how you like your bacon.  I like it crispy but I know a lot of people like it a little bit more chewy. 

 First, I line a cooking sheet with foil.  This keeps all of the grease together and when it's done you just let it cool and throw out the piece of foil.  

Then line all the bacon up letting them just barely touch.  Make sure to not completely over lap them.  

Then really keep and eye on them.  They can go from almost done to completely burnt in just a couple of minutes.  

After they are cooked to your liking, take them off and let them cook and drain on a stack of paper towels.
