I discovered baking bacon in the oven about a year and a half ago. A tiny kitchen apartment and making waffles, bacon and eggs for dinner on a family game night, I didn’t have the time or space to babysit frying bacon. It was out of necessity that I cooked the bacon in the oven.
I took the roasting pan with the slotted tray and laid the bacon out and popped it in the oven. I didn’t have to pay attention to it and could focus on the waffle making.
Amazing! It came out of the oven and all the grease had dripped away. The bacon was crisp and melted, MELTED, in your mouth. I don’t know how I lived without oven baked bacon before this.
I do know I never loved bacon this much. It was always greasy and chewy or burnt. Not anymore.
I haven’t had that pan for a awhile, it wasn’t mine. But my sister showed me her trick and it works great!

Bake at 400* for about 20 minutes, more or less depending on the thickness of the bacon.
