The best way to cook bacon is in the oven on parchment paper because it allows for an easy cleanup. The bacon sits in its own rendered fat as it bakes, it cooks more quickly than if you cooked it on a rack. The fatty parts also get wonderfully crispy.


  • 1/2 sliced bacon


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

    1.Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
    Make sure to cut a large-enough sheet of parchment paper so that there is overhang on all sides. Then fold the excess up so that the drippings don’t seep through any cracks.
    Lay the bacon strips flat, making sure pieces do not overlap.
    2. Bake until crisp and browned, 15 to 18 minutes, 24 minutes (thick-cut bacon), rotating the sheets once.
    3. Transfer strips to a paper towel to drain.
    Let the drippings cool slightly, lift up the parchment, and store the drippings into a container.
