Bacon

Let's talk about bacon.  There are three ways I cook it.  
  1. If I'm cooking it to crumble it up for  something, I lay a paper towel on a microwave safe flat dish, place 6 pieces on it, and cover it with another paper towel.  6 minutes (depending on your microwave) on high power and it's done. 
  2. If I'm cooking just a few slices for something I fry it up in a pan. 
  3. If I'm making a lot to feed a group for breakfast, I cook it in the oven.  This is my favorite method by far.  I think it tastes the best. My brother-in-law taught me this little trick a few years back.  You put them on top of a rack in a baking sheet so that the grease drips down off the bacon.  Set the temperature to 400 degrees and cook it for 20 minutes.  You have to keep your eye on it though because the time really depends on your oven.

What temp do you cook the bacon on in the oven? How long does it cook for?

Frizzlefry? As is KA's Frizlefry? I'll be honest, I'm a little giddy that we have a crossover reader. Thanks for commenting because I fully intended on including that info. I don't know how I forgot.

400 degrees for 20 minutes.
