Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes


  • 1 package of bacon 1 lb or however many pieces you would like to cook
  • Cooking Spray


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Spray baking sheet lined with foil with non stick cooking spray.
  3. Lay bacon onto baking sheet in a single line for each piece.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until it is cooked to your liking.

  5. Line a plate or another baking sheet with paper towels (I usually use 2 on bottom and then one final one on top layering in between if needed)
  6. Remove bacon from baking sheet and set on the paper towels so excess oil can be absorbed. Lay one final layer on top of all the bacon to get the oil absorbed off the top as well. Enjoy.

Recipe Notes

Store bacon in a ziplock bag and refrigerate for 3-4 days.
