  • 1 pound sliced bacon


  • Line baking sheets with aluminum foil.
  • Place bacon slices on sheet pans in a single layer, not over lapping.
  • Place the baking sheets in a cold oven.
  • Turn the oven on to 400°.
  • Bake for 14-20 minutes, until you have reached your desired crispiness.
  • Place baked bacon on a paper towel lined baking sheet.


If you are using both racks in your oven, rotate your sheet pans half way through baking (around the 8 minute mark).
For extra crispy bacon, you can bake the bacon on a wire rack on top of the lined baking sheet.
