Perfect Oven Bacon


This method produces perfectly crisp bacon without the frying or the cleanup.  I’ve tried baking it multiple times directly on a baking sheet and it just comes out too greasy for my liking; even greasier than pan frying.  So I tried baking it on a cooling rack set inside of a baking sheet and the results were just what I wanted:  no-mess, crispy, chewy bacon toned down on the grease meter.  And one of the best things about it…not having to scrub down my stove after frying it.  25 thumbs up in my book.
