Why does everybody love bacon? Because everything is better with bacon. :-)
After all, what would breakfast be without crispy bacon strips? Eggs with bacon, French toast with bacon, pancakes with bacon, great on a sandwich or salad.... I love it.
You can even buy chocolate bars with bacon.
There are many ways to cook bacon, one of my favorites and a very easy way to cook it is in the oven. No mess in the kitchen with all the bacon fat.
So let's see how we bake it.
Line a baking sheet with foil for an easy cleanup.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Place bacon slices on the foil or on cooling rack used for cookies.
Season with black pepper and place the baking sheet on the center rack in the oven.
Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown. The exact time will depend on the thickness of the bacon slices. Bacon gets crisper as it cools.
Remove from the oven.
Arrange bacon slices on a plate lined with paper towel to absorb the fat.
Serve on a sandwich or salad, with french toast, or on soup... the sky is the limit.
