For years this is the way I have cooked bacon. Clean-up's a breeze and no grease spatters.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with tin foil, lay your bacon about 3/4" to 1" apart.
Bake at 400 for 12 to 20 minutes. The timing just depends on how crispy you like your bacon. The high heat is the key for crispness.
Remove the pan from the oven, allow it to cool for a minute or two on the sheet and then remove it to a paper towel lined plate. You can blot it with another paper towel to remove any excess grease .
Ball up the tin foil, toss it and then give your pan a quick rinse in soapy water.
And There You Go- You can feed more hungry guests this way too. I also line roasting pans and casserole dishes with tin foil to make quick clean-ups.
