Oven-Baked Bacon & Other Fun Summer Meal Ideas

“Oven-Baked Bacon & Other Fun Summer Meal Ideas”

Craving some bacon? (Who wouldn’t be?) Try baking it in the oven!

This less-mess, splatter-free technique puts the “bake” back in bacon.

It’s pretty simple to do.



Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper, then lay the bacon strips flat, making sure pieces do not overlap.
Bake until crisp and browned, 15 to 18 minutes, or desired doneness, rotating the sheets once.
Transfer strips to a paper towel to drain.

Eat all of it before you sit down…. or I mean, transfer to a plate and share with the family.

Speaking of bacon….
