Cooking bacon for a bunch can be a challenge but it is EASY when you make Vickies Baked Bacon.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Lay a wire rack into a foil lined rimmed cookie or baking sheet.  Lay bacon slices on the rack.  You will be able to cook 10 to 12 slices this way.  If you need to cook more, use two baking sheets.

For a pretty presentation, scrunch bacon slightly to make a ribbon effect.

Bake for 15 to 18 minutes.  Note:  If you are cooking extra thick bacon, you will have to adjust the baking time.

Bacon really seems to round out a breakfast or brunch.  Always allow at least 2 slices of bacon per person.  I think this is the best way to cook bacon because all of the grease drains off into the foil lined pan as the bacon bakes.  Then the clean-up is a breeze.  Just gather up the aluminum foil and throw away.  If you save your bacon grease, you can drain it out of the pan and into your bacon grease container.  Either way…this is super easy!

  1. This is how restaurants do it. It makes it so much simpler and quicker. I also do this on my stone bar pan with parchment paper. Makes clean up easier!

    1. I really can’t believe how easy this is! I like your idea for the Pampered Chef Stone Bar Pan too! I have that pan and I’ll try it the next time. Thanks for sharing! 🙂 Vickie
