  • 16 oz bacon


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
    I use a 14x20 baking sheet
  • Place bacon in a single layer and do not overlap.
  • Cook for approximately 18-22 minutes.
    Cook less for less crispy bacon, cook more for more crispy bacon.
  • Carefully remove baking sheet from the oven, be careful not to spill grease.
  • Transfer cooked bacon onto a plate lined with paper towels.
  • Allow grease to cool down and then you can easily throw away parchment paper.
