Baked Bacon - Anyone Here Try?

Have you ever prepared bacon with this method?

I recently tried this way to cook bacon and I was impressed with the results. We had some tasty BLT's that were pretty great. yum smiley

Here's the site if anyone is interested.

Why should you bake your bacon?

Baked bacon does not curl – you get nice straight bacon pieces every time.

Cooks evenly – no white fatty pieces on one end and burnt bacon on the other.

No splattering of bacon grease all over the place.

No need to babysit the bacon. You don’t even have to turn it over!

Tastes delicious.

That's how restaurants do it. All the positives mentioned are true, but I don't like the end product as much as fried. The meat tends to be harder and chewier, but it's WAY easier and cleaner.

For nearly 20 years now. 2 smaller cookie sheets, lined with heavy foil.

One stays in a few mintues longer for crispier bacon. We crumble it on salads, or mix into eggs dishes.

Wife will often season it, maybe 1/2 a pan -- brown sugar, ground pepper, garlic salt, etc. Kids like the specific flavors.

Its *different* than pan fried bacon... maybe not a "fatty" tasing. We still do from time to time -- but its a mess, and usually only if it gets a request.

Baked in my Panny TCO, which uses standard quarter-size pans. Place it on a sheet
of parchment paper, 400 w/ convection for 10-12 minutes.

Also have a microwave cooker that works well. 4-slices in about 3 mins (1100W).
iirc, paid $7 on a sale @ bezosville for this one with cover:

I don't have a dog (or a pig) in this fight, since Jew boy here has a pork allergy (not a Kosher thing), so I can't eat enough bacon to form a valid opinion. Wiff and Kid, however, eat mass quantities of the stuff so I'm always around the preparation. Li'l Bro buys whole pork bellies and cures, smokes, slices, packages his own bacon, so again I'm exposed to the production.

What I've gleaned from much close observation, without actual ingestion, is that if you render like 85% - 90% of the bacon in the oven, en masse when convenient, you can finish it off in the fry pan when you're ready to consume, and seemingly get the best tastin' bacon by doing it that way. Adding spices and/or other goodies, for add'l personal gratification, is always an option along the way. Repeated observation has taught me that you don't want to use bacon that's sliced too thin, unless it's for a special purpose.

2¢ from the observation deck.

When I was a kid we used a Wiz Grid which made the bacon flat and crumbly. Very good. When my young daughters discovered bacon I found an old Wiz Grid but the non-stick wasn't so hot. So I switched to a Cuisinart which worked pretty similarly. Then my brother visited and baked some bacon and I was sold on that method. If I need just a few slices the Cuisinart is the way to go but if I'm making up the whole package then baking is the way to go.

When I bbq, I will put a couple of lbs on away from the fire and let them smoke/cook for a while. Add it to sandwiches/burgers until it's gone.

I have been a bacon baker for a few years. Everyone else in my family is vegetarian, so I make a batch in the oven and freeze until needed.

But Rolando just rocked my world...next bacon will be on the BBQ.

Bonus points. Put a pan underneath, to catch the drippings. Soak those up with paper towels and put in the freezer. Use those bacon grease soaked paper towels as kindling to start your next fire. Much better than lighter fluid.

I didn't know people did it any other way. How else would you do it?

This will be a hard pass for me.

I like bacon a little spring and not crispy.

A little chewy is fine by me.

I don't like biting into it and having it break up.

Costco's already-cooked bacon is great.

I can heat it up a bit, and it's warm and tasty.

And very little mess, so that's ok by me.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

And hope is a lousy defense.

Making perfect bacon is easier than you might think. I used to forgo making bacon because the gigantic mess it made just wasn’t worth the amazing taste. A few years ago I learned about baking bacon and it has changed my life forever.

Well okay...smiley-laughing001

That's the way we did it in the military. When you are cooking for a hundred plus people frying is not an option. Frying does taste better.
