Baking Bacon

My meat market, the Daily Grind makes the best homemade bacon. 
I like to bake it as it sheds the grease and with Rick’s special flavoring, it comes out picture perfect every time. It’s so much easier to line a pan with foil and bake it while you are dealing with everything else.
I like it plain with a side of eggs but my all time favorite? No matter what season – a BLT!
Bon Appetit!
Cookie sheet – with sides – do not use a flat cookie sheet
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a cookie sheet with foil, you can leave the foil a little crinkled so the grease doing pool under the bacon. Do not use a flat cookie sheet, use a bar pan.
Lay out bacon one strip at a time on the cookie sheet. The bacon should not touch. You can leave about a quarter inch between of space between each slice of bacon.
Place cookie sheet with bacon into the oven and bake for 15-17 minutes.
When the bacon is browned and crisp drain on paper towels.
