Less Mess Bacon Works For Me

Ok, I admit it, I totally stink at cooking bacon.  I never understand that it continues to cook after you take it off, or something like that? 
Plus, I think breakfast is the hardest meal to cook, there are so many things to do all at once. 
This is the way I cook bacon.  I have been doing it this way for over a year now.  Yes, I cook my bacon in the oven. 
Heat your oven to 350 degrees.
Take a cooling rack and lay it on a cookie sheet (you can use your broiler pan instead).  Then you spread out the bacon across the pan.  It’s okay if some overlaps slightly.
Bake it for 20 minutes give or take how done you like your bacon.  Isn’t that about how long it takes to cook the pancakes, hash browns and eggs? 

Easy peasy clean up too! 

This works for me, and is linked up over at WFMW at We Are That Family

This is pretty much how restaurants cook the bacon too. At least the one I worked in. Only they used parchment paper instead of racks. They'd do multiple trays before the start of the breakfast rush and keep warm. They'd throw it on the grill thing just before serving so it was "fresher". I'd forgotten about cooking bacon that way. Thank you for the reminder. It is way easier!

Thanks for this tip. I tried it one time, but I don't think I did it correctly. And I don't enjoy cooking bacon cause it's so messy, your idea solves that problem!
