Making Oven Bacon
I hope I'm not the last one to know about this.
That silly ole' Pinterest. Everyday I find new creative things to do. Lotsa hot tips to make my life more efficient. Trouble is, I think what I find is so innovative, I must be the first one to have discovered it. The fact that I'm finding it it in a write up on Pinterest does not interfere with my feeling of discovery.
One pound of organic bacon placed
on parchment lined Reynold's Wrap.
And then, because I've made a discovery, I have to share it on my web site and BlogHer. So, spoiler alert! This post is about cooking bacon in the oven. If you have been doing that for years, don't burst my bubble. Let me live in my own little newly ovened bacon world, safe and secure. But, for those of you who haven't tried this, it has changed our lives. :) We're not "afraid" to eat bacon anymore.
Place a sheet of lined Reynold's Wrap
over the top of the jelly roll pan.
No longer do we have to stand and cook bacon, getting splattered and making a greasy mess all over the stove top. Now, we cook bacon like royalty. We could wear white gloves. We could. And, not get them mussed and be ready for tea afterwards. So, what you do is, get a jelly roll pan, take a sheet of the Reynold's Wrap non-stick Pan Lining Paper that is foil lined with parchment paper so the food does not touch the foil. Make sure you have extra, so it will cover the sides of the pan to catch the grease.
Perfect bacon with hardly any cleanup. Yay!
Place a second sheet of the Pan Lining Paper over the top of the jelly roll pan, with the parchment paper toward the food. Cook 45 minutes at 375 degrees and check on it as your oven time and temperature may differ. The Pinterest pin was right when it stated we would never cook bacon on the top of the stove again. We haven't yet!
Have you tried oven bacon? Am I the last person in the world?
