  • 1 pound pork bacon


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Place bacon on 2 cookie sheets or broiler pans (to catch the grease), making sure that no pieces are touching or overlapping.
  • Cook for about 10-15 minutes, then flip and cook for another 10-15 minutes (or until desired crispiness).
  • Place on paper towel to remove as much grease as possible.


The results are nice and flat, crispy pieces of bacon.
