Perfect Baked Bacon Everytime

In my opinion, this is low fat bacon, or as low fat as bacon can get and still BE bacon. Oven cooked bacon doesn't curl, cooks evenly, and browns beautifully. Bacon cooked in this manner takes a little longer to prepare, but the end result is worth it. The bacon strips are crisp, but not crunchy. 
What You Need

  • 12"x18"x1" baking pan 
  • 10"x16" cooling rack
  • 12 -16 ounces of raw bacon
  • Cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Place cooking rack into baking pan, then spray with a light coat of cooking spray.
  3. Lay bacon strips across the cooling rack
  4. Place pan of bacon into preheated oven and bake about 20 minutes or until it is cooked to the desired amount of doneness.
A note of caution: Do not get impatient and turn the oven temperature up past 375 degrees Fahrenheit. You could start an oven fire by doing this.
