Perfect Bacon




  1. Set oven to 420 degrees, then run each strip of bacon under cold water.*
  2. Either layer the bacon on a wire rack that fits in a large baking pan or cover the baking pan with aluminum foil and layer the bacon inside. Maker sure the bacon is not overlapping.
  3. Bake for about 20 minutes, checking at the 10 minute mark, then every 2 minutes after that to make sure it doesn’t burn.
  4. Using tongs, move bacon from the sheet to a plate lined with a paper towel to sop up some of that grease, then use as needed!


Yes, cold water, because what that does is prevents the meat from shrinking once its in the oven.
