If you want perfectly cooked bacon that doesn’t curl up, it’s time you learned how to cook bacon in the oven! I love bacon, but don’t like dealing with spattering grease and twisted up pieces. Plus, I really like drizzling each slice of pork candy with 100% maple syrup before I pop it in to bake. I hope you enjoy my recipe for oven-baked bacon. Leave your comments below, I’d love to hear how you do it too!
Baked Bacon Recipe
- Metal baking sheet covered in aluminum foil
- 1 Pkg. thick center cut bacon
- 100% maple syrup
- Paper towels for draining grease
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lay bacon flat, piece by piece – make sure that none of the pieces are overlapping. You may need to get another baking sheet depending on the bacon width. Drizzle each slice with maple syrup. Place baking sheet, uncovered, in the middle rack of the oven. Bake for 13-15 minutes. If you like your bacon extra crispy add 1-2 minutes to cooking time. Remove perfectly cooked bacon from the baking sheet and place on paper towels to drip excess grease. Enjoy!
