Line a rimmed baking sheet (jelly roll pan) with foil (or parchm paper)
Arrange the bacon in a single layer.
Place the tray of bacon in a cold oven. Turn on the oven to 400 degrees.
Bake for anywhere from 17-25 minutes, or until the bacon is cooked to your preference
Baking time will vary depending on how fast your oven gets up to temp, and how thick your bacon is. Thinner bacon will cook faster than thicker bacon.
When the bacon is crispy, carefully remove the pan from the oven making sure not to spill the bacon grease.
Transfer the bacon to a paper towel lined plate to drain. Then ejoy!
If you want to save the bacon grease, pour it into a heat-safe container.
*Note: If you have never baked bacon in your oven before, start checking the bacon as early as 8 minutes. The rate at which the bacon cooks varies depending on how fast your oven comes to temp. I’ve heard of bacon cooking as fast as 10 minutes and taking as long as 30 minutes. From my experience, it is usually done between 17-25 minutes.
