I happen to land in the FIRM camp when it comes to bacon! If I can’t break it, it’s not crispy enough. But it shouldn’t be burned. Yes, it’s a fine line but I’ve finally achieved it!
Baken’ the Bacon! Here’s how!
Put foil onto a cookie sheet that has sides (you don’t want the grease to go anywhere but into the pan below.) Optional: lay cooling racks onto the cookie sheet
Lay bacon in single layer onto the racks
Place tray in a cold oven and set it to 400 degrees
Come back in 20 minutes to beautifully perfectly crispy bason!
Of course you might need to check it around the 15 minute mark just to be sure it’s not overdoing it in there. Some bacon can be sliced thicker or thinner depending upon the brand. Find your timing and bring home the Crispiest Bacon Blue Ribbon from the county fair this summer!
Almost any kind of paper art has intrigued me since I was a small child. Photography, card making and watercolor painting are my most recent passions. My inspiration changes hourly, daily, weekly... I suppose that is the way it is with an artist.
