Beautiful Bacon

  • 20m
  • 20m


  • 1 lb bacon


In the pan

  1. Do not preheat pan. Place bacon in a single layer in a heavy bottomed pan, and turn heat to medium high. Fry bacon to desired doneness using tongs to rotate bacon so that it is evenly cooked. I use a perforated splatter lid to avoid burns and prevent moisture from accumulating and making the fat sizzle. Cook to desired doneness.

In the oven (chewier)

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Place bacon in a single layer of a lipped baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes until desired doneness is achieved, remove bacon from oven.
  2. Using tongs, transfer bacon to a plate lined with a paper towel and serve.
  3. While the bacon grease is still hot, strain it through a fine metal mesh strainer into a clean glass jar. Allow to cool before covering to avoid condensation. Bacon fat can be used for cooking.
