    I started cooking bacon this way about a year ago and I haven’t used a frying pan since. Someone suggested baking it on a foil covered broiler pan with the foil cut where the slits are so the grease would drain off the bacon. I haven’t tried it that way yet but I think I will next time. It would mean more clean up but also a little healthier bacon, if there is such a thing as healthier bacon. ;)

        I use a wire rack for cooling cookies on top of the foil lined cookie sheet. That way the bacon has even less grease!

          I’ve cooked bacon this way for a few years now. We never use a frying pan anymore. It’s great because you can plan and prep the rest of breakfast and still have everything hot to the table. I too use a wire cookie cooling rack. I sometimes spray it with a cooking oil, because sometimes the bacon can stick to the rack a bit. I think we actually do about 422 for 22 mins. but, again, like the previous post, it depends on how well you like your bacon done and ovens vary. Keep an eye on it and you will get it perfect to
          your taste.
          We also, at times, due to being a large family, will put not only the bacon on the cooling rack, but underneath it too. The one’s on the bottom are a tad bit greaser, but it’s works. Happy Bacon Baking!

    I have been baking mine for years, too. I use my Pampered Chef baking stones, and no need for foil. I also bake mine at 425 degrees. I LOVE this way. Keeps me from having to clean the greasy stove top after I make bacon.

    I love how there is 10 pieces of bacon on the pan and only 6 cooked pieces in the picture. Hum…. who ate the bacon between the oven and the plate? Great idea… I’m going to try it next time we have BLT’s.
