How to Cook Bacon in the Oven

Learn how to cook bacon in the oven from chef Adrian Ashby in this Howcast food video.


Hey guys. How are you doing? It's Adrian Ashby again and I want to explain to you how to cook bacon in the oven properly and perfectly. So what we got here, we've got our cookie sheet, we've got a sheet of foil, we've got a baking rack, and of course we got our bacon. So, what we're going to do is this: we're going to line the sheet with the foil just to catch any excess grease.

You really don't want to be washing too many appliances here, you know? So we're also going to then put our baking rack on top of that and cleanness is the big key in the kitchen. We're going to use our tongs once again. Line it up nicely. There we go, okay, alright. And one more for good luck. So, we have everything set up with our rack.

Now what we want to do is put it in the oven and what you want to do is make sure your at maybe about 375 and you'll have it in there for maybe 10 to 15 minutes depending on the crispiness you're looking for. Again, 10 to 15 minutes. Alright, so we're going into the oven and here we go. Alright, we'll see you in 10. So the bacon has been in the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes, let's see what the finished product looks like.

First things first, you always want to have your mitt. Oh that looks good. Oh boy, oh boy. We'll set it down right here. Whew, close that door. Alright, what we've got here is oven baked bacon people. This is some good stuff right here.

And the reason why I know it's so good, you could see the color, it's cooked down perfectly, it's nice and crispy, it's got a little curl on the end, and one of the best parts is all the grease, for the most part, has left the bacon. But like with anything else, what we're going to do is we are going to get a plate, we're going to get a paper towel.

Again, this is hot stuff so tongs are your best friend with bacon. Place it on the paper towel, there we go. Alright, and that my friends is bacon in the oven.
