Since we started making our bacon this way, we can’t go back to a pan. I think it tastes just as good, in fact, for those who like their bacon not crispy, this is the best way to do it. You just line a baking pan with parchment and lay the strips down. Set the oven at 400 degrees—it should take around 20 minutes. When it’s done, pour off the fat (you could save it for other uses later) and lay them down on paper towels like you’d do if you’d cooked it in the pan. This means no having to clean up the stove from bacon grease, and no messy pan.
