Oven-cooked BaconPosted: January 30, 2012
I love bacon. Love, love, love it.
I also love my glass cook-top. Love, love, love it.
However, I hate cleaning splattered bacon grease from my glass cook-top. Hate it with a capital H.
Sooo, I make bacon in the oven. Yay!
I line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, line up the bacon, and bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes. I know some people bake at a higher temperature, but I have a tendency to burn bacon, so a lower temp is best for me.
And I always reserve the bacon grease in a mason jar in my fridge. When I turn the oven on I set the jar on the counter to warm up a bit (fresh, hot bacon grease + cold jar of bacon grease = cracked jar and slimy mess).
While my bacon drains on a paper-towel-lined plate, I let the grease cool a few minutes before folding up the foil to funnel it into the jar.
