How to bake bacon:
1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Lay the bacon on a baking sheet, no need to grease it at all. Make sure not to overlap the bacon on the sheet.
2. Bake the bacon for 10-15 minutes. For thicker slices of bacon or to make your bacon extra crispy cook it a little longer at 15-20 minutes.
3. Place the bacon on some paper towels to remove excess grease. Baking bacon is the best way to cook large amounts of bacon and to avoid a huge mess.
