Baked bacon is so easy and results in perfectly crisp, beautiful bacon every time!


  • 1 (12 ounce) package thin sliced bacon (about 14 slices)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Line a large rimmed baking pan with foil and set a baking rack into the pan. Spray the baking rack generously with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange bacon in a single layer on the rack trying not to let it overlap.
  3. Bake the bacon for about 15 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through baking time, until bacon is of desired crispness. Remove bacon from the oven and let set for a few minutes before serving.
  4. For easy clean-up, let baking sheet cool completely. Remove rack and gently fold up the foil to put in the trash.


Thick sliced bacon usually takes about 25 minutes to bake crisp.
