Oven Bacon

I have seen the bacon filtered light.


The pictures for this post are from the same evening I made ham and swiss (and bacon) paninis.




You will get greasy hands when separating the bacon- just go with it.

In order to

  1. rinse the bacon under running water, while
  2. separating the pieces and
  3. not stretching each piece too much
  • you will have to get all up in the bacon’s business.


When I’m done separating the bacon, I wipe as much grease off my hands as possible with a paper towel before attempting to wash with soap and water.


It takes about the same amount of time to pan fry but this way:

  1. I can prep other parts of the meal,
  2. the bacon comes out evenly cooked,
  3. AND not as many grease burns (be careful pulling it out of the oven, yea?)


…apparently it’s a list day. here’s a pretty picture then:




If you haven’t tried oven bacon yet- try it just once!
