Bacon for a Crowd (or your family!)

I have discovered what has become life changing for weekend breakfasts at our house. This is SO simple, but works BEAUTIFULLY every single time (as long as you don't over cook it like I did one time and end up with very yummy, brittle, crumbly, dark bacon that you can't bear to throw out so you crumble and decide to use for bacon bits later).

I love this method. No more bacon grease splatters, no more curly bacon (much easier for sandwiches, etc.!), no more standing over a hot pan and trying to avoid getting hit in the face when you flip bacon. Preheat your oven, lay out the amount of bacon you need on a foil lined baking sheet, pop it in, set the timer and DONE!! One less thing to coordinate while you're preparing the rest of your breakfast. I love this and we've used this cooking method pretty much every weekend since I discovered it since we have bacon usually at least once over the weekends to go with pancakes, waffles, eggs and toast, etc.

Bacon (desired amount)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Arrange bacon on baking sheet in a single layer with the edges touching or slightly overlapping.
  2. Bake in preheated oven to desired degree of doneness; typically 10 to 15 minutes. Remove bacon from the baking sheet with tongs or a fork, and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
