What's the best way to do it? I found this recipe...does it sound like it will produce crispy bacon? I like mine near-burnt.
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C or gasmark 7)
  2. Take a large cookie sheet with a lip and cover it in aluminum foil. I like the wide heavy duty stuff that can cover the tray with a single piece.
  3. Arrange the bacon on the sheet without overlapping.
  4. Bake for six minutes.
  5. Turn the cookie sheet around 180 degrees.
  6. Bake for another 4-7 minutes depending on your oven and how crispy you like your bacon.
  7. Lift the bacon out with tongs and set on a plate covered in paper towels. I dab the tops with another paper towel too.

Lay out your slices on a rack over a lipped pan and slide it into a cold oven. Set the thermostat for 400 degrees. The slow heating will allow a lot of the fat to render out without burning the lean. Now once the oven hits temperature, check on the bacon every three minutes because once most of that fat is out, the bacon can burn very, very quickly. By the way if you like your bacon a little on the fatty side just go ahead and start it in a 400 degree oven but remember, check on it every three minutes.

Almost all restaurants cook bacon in the oven. Takes up too much burner space to cook it on top. I do it at home too. I think it takes longer, but it produces nice flat bacon perfect for sandwiches.

I do my bacon in the oven and put it on a rack so that the fat drips off. Turns out the crispiest pork, easy cleanup (aluminum foil) and minimal watching.

I'd give anything for a BLT and a bottle of bourbon right now.
