Can You Cook Bacon in the Oven??
Bacon is one of my faves, but cooking it can be a pain. Quite literally. Trying to flip bacon without burning yourself or making a mess can take some skill. That's why I cook mine in the oven!
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Servings: 3-4



You will need a sheet pan, about 9x13. You can also lay foil down in your pan to really help with the mess. I personally prefer not to cook with foil.

This method can be used with any bacon - Sugar-free, Original, or Peppered!

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • Lay your thawed bacon onto your sheet pan. Try not to completely stack them on top of each other, but it's ok if they overlap.

  • Put into the oven and cook for 20-22 minutes. I like my bacon a little crispier, so I cook it for 22 minutes.
  • When finished, carefully remove the pan from the oven; there will be a lot of grease.

  • Prepare a plate with paper towel on top to absorb the grease. Remove bacon from the pan and place it on the plate. Now it's ready to eat!

I find the easiest way to clean the pan is by letting it sit until it thickens. Then I scrape it off into a container to use later or into a bag to throw away.

Bacon grease is great for cooking vegetables! It also works well as the oil in a savory pie crust 😋 I love using bacon grease in my pot pie crust.

Let me know if you give this a try!
