Bacon in the Oven
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean up.
Arrange the bacon in a single layer. The slices can be very close together but should not overlap. If they do, they will stick together. Use a second sheet pan, if necessary.
Bake for about 15 - 25 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
Remove the bacon from the oven and place the bacon slices on a plate lined with paper towels.
Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 3 days. You can also freeze it for up to 3 months.
You can save the bacon grease to be used for a separate recipe however, if you are going to get rid of it, let it cool and solidify for easier clean up.
