I can't think of a single smell that makes me hungrier than the smell of cooking bacon. It's also the only thing that could possibly tempt me to get out of bed sooner than I would like too. In fact, I love everything about bacon. The saying around here is that everything is better with bacon.
Bacon is awesome, but the mess it makes, not so much. Grease splatters and burns do not make for a good breakfast. And you constantly have to watch while juggling the pancake flipping and scrambling the eggs. I've got an easier way.
I've been making bacon this way for years, but it wasn't until recently that someone pointed out to me how little known this method was.
Some advantages to making bacon in the oven.
No Mess Oven-Baked Bacon
8 (or more) strips of bacon
Preheat oven to 350*F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Arrange slices of bacon in a single layer on the baking sheet.
Bake bacon for 12-15 minutes, or until as crispy as you like. Bake thick-cut bacon for 15-18 minutes.
Using tongs, transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain before serving.
