I was relaxing with my Cooking Light magazine when I got to the article entitled, “30 Common Cooking Mistakes“. Out of the thirty, I found one really interesting. It suggested cooking bacon in the oven for an even, crisp look. I tried it and was astounded at how well it worked. I followed their instructions exactly:
1.) Line a jellyroll pan with aluminum foil.
2.) Set a wire rack on the pan.
3.) Place the bacon in a single layer on the wire rack.
4.) Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes
The result was perfect bacon and almost no mess (I hate the grease splatters when I use a skillet.) My biggest question is why have I never heard of this before?
