What you need
Fresh Bacon of your choice
Foil Broiler Pan
Arrange as much bacon in your foil pan as you can without the bacon overlapping. Bacon can be touching because there will be some shrinkage in cooking. I use a foil pan with a wavy bottom like a broiler pan. Place Foil Pan on a cookie sheet. This is very important because I re-use my foil pans and one time one leaked to the bottom of my oven.
Baking The Bacon
Do NOT preheat your oven. Place bacon, foil pan, and cookie sheet in a cold oven on the middle rack. Set your oven to 400 degrees and set your timer for 15 minutes. Starting with a cold oven produces bacon that is less curled and less likely to spatter. Depending on how much bacon you have in your pan, how thick your bacon is, and how fast your oven heats up it could take from 15 to 30 minutes. Once you have done this a few times you should know exactly how your oven performs and less watching will be required. Check bacon frequently. You should not have to turn the bacon over but it will get done a little faster if you do. I do not turn my bacon over and use thick bacon and it usually takes about 25-30 minutes for perfect crispy baking in my oven.
Enjoy with very little clean up
Arrange old newspaper with one layer of paper towels. Remove Tray from the oven and using a fork transfer the bacon to the paper towels. Cover with another layer of paper towels and fold the newspaper over on top. This will drain your bacon with the least amount of paper towels used. Enjoy!
Dispose of or save bacon grease properly. I reuse my foil pans so I just rinse them off and then they go in the dishwasher.
