We love our bacon around here. I only cook 2 pieces per person because we could eat an entire package, easy. Moderation, right? And here’s the secret to perfect, flat, crunchy (who asks for chewy bacon, anyway??), mess-less bacon every time: the oven. No splatters, no standing over a hot, greasy skillet flipping bacon, no smokey kitchen. Perfect.
Tonight we FINALLY put up our Christmas tree, so breakfast for dinner was just right for a rainy night in. Chocolate chip pancakes with bananas and real maple syrup and Perfect Bacon. Yum. Oh, and I truly believe in my heart that Bisquick makes the best pancakes.
Perfect Bacon (you’ll want to write this down, it’s complicated)
Here’s what you need:
Bacon (I like Petit Jean (Arkansas product) but it’s kinda $$$, so I usually get Hormel Black Label)
Place bacon on a cookie sheet. Place in oven and turn it on to 400. Cook 17-20 minutes or until it’s as brown and crispy as you like. Thicker bacon will take longer to cook. When cooked, remove bacon to paper towels to drain.
