The Easiest Baked Bacon

  • PrepTime: 5 Mins
  • CookTime: 28 Mins
  • TotalTime: 33 Mins


  1. 1 pound bacon (preferably thick-sliced)


  1. Heat the oven to 375 F.
  2. Line a large rimmed baking sheet or two jelly roll pans with foil.  Place a cooling rack in the pan and arrange the bacon on the rack. If you don't have a rack that will fit in the pan, spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray and arrange the bacon on the foil.
  3. Bake the bacon for about 26 to 30 minutes, until the bacon is nicely browned. Thin strips of bacon will take less time than thick strips. When you begin to smell the bacon, start watching. 
  4. Transfer the bacon strips to paper towels to drain.
