Kittencal's Method for Oven Cooked Bacon
"When I make this I make lots and then freeze in bags using my Food Saver storage system, this method saves time and not to mention the greasy clean up that comes with frying, I pour the grease into a Pyrex measuring cup then save and refrigerate overnight or until hard then scoop out a few tablespoons at a time, freeze on plates then I place in freezer bags to use in recipes to add flavor, you may save or discard the grease "
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (regular or convection oven, if you are using a regular oven set rack to lowest position).
For easier clean up line your pan with foil, then spray generously with cooking spray.
Arrange the bacon slices in one layer in the pan overlapping the slices slightly (this will prevent too much shrinkage). Cook the slices until evenly browned (about 17-22) minutes turning the bacon halfway through cooking time.
Transfer to paper towels or a rack. Use immediately or freeze to use later. Heat in microwave to crisp up before serving.
