How To Cook Bacon

Sometimes I'm not in the mood for a mess.

And let's face it....To enjoy bacon for breakfast on the weekends usually there is a lot of mess and work to go along with it...

I mean how exactly are you supposed to fry bacon, and cook pancakes at the same time without one of them getting cold?


The BEST way to cook bacon is is this:

Easy-to-Make Working Girl Bacon
1 sheet parchment paper
Cookie sheet
Thick cut bacon (you will thank me for this)
Fancify:  brush maple syrup on it after its done...

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Lay bacon on top of parchment paper and put in the oven for about 20 minutes or till crisp/reached desired doneness. That's it. Nothin to see here...Continue with flapjack flipping please.

Unfortunately you are now going to eat more bacon than you even did before minus the mess and the extra juggling in the kitchen.

You're welcome.


  1. Thanks for the invite to your site. I think it an excellent way to cook bacon, and brushing with maple syrup ... a supreme touch!

  2. I'm not that crazy about bacon *gasp!*, but if I ever feel like eating some, I do plan to bake it instead of frying it. Much cleaner. I love your clear photos.

  3. Very cute, just watch the grammar at the end. "You're Welcome", would be a more powerful ending.

  4. You should start bacon in a cold oven, much like starting them in a cold pan. Wait, did this just get MORE low maintenance?

  5. I cook mine on a cooling rack, that way the bacon fat is on the bottom, so definitely less fatten!

  6. ooh...fabulous. I hate the oily mess of frying. And your bacon post has now reminded me of the bacon-wrapped dates that I still have yet to make but seem to always be on my mind....mmmmmm

  7. I've been cooking bacon this way (sans parchement paper) for twenty years or more. Definitely the only way to go!

  8. I usually make it this way, except I line the cookie sheet, but then put a cooling rack on top of the cookie sheet and place the baon on that. It helps some of the bacon grease to drip down onto the sheet and not drench the bacon, making it a little less greasy

  9. I love the idea about putting it on a cooling rack on the cookie sheet. I'm definitely going to start doing that as well. Brilliant idea!

  10. I can't believe people are correcting your grammar like that.... tell them to shove it.

  11. For thin sliced bacon do it the same way but start in a cold oven and start watching it at 18 minutes. I also line the cookie sheet with heavy duty aluminum foil .. it lets me save the drippings which I use for other things in the kitchen. pull out the foil ... throw it away and you've cleaned up the mess!
