Cooking Bacon

Not too long ago, I discovered a wonderful way to cook bacon. Set the oven to 400℉. Place your bacon in a single layer on a cookie sheet (or two – just make sure they fit in the oven). Then put it in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes depending on how crispy you want it. Be careful taking it out of the oven so you don’t spill any of the grease.  Tada! Your bacon is cooked to the perfect crispness and your stovetop doesn’t look like it’s just been through a splatter war.

And just in case you don’t know what to do with the bacon, you can crumble it up onto a bowlful of baby spinach, top with a couple of hard boiled eggs, add some balsamic vinaigrette dressing and mix gently. A super easy and really tasty salad.
