The Perfect Bacon

Being on a keto diet almost demands bacon at least once a week. I love bacon, but have always hated cooking it…until now!

This may be a trick you already know, but so many people that come over for breakfast are amazed with how I cook bacon that I thought it was worth a post.

How to cook the perfect bacon

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and place parchment paper in pan. Tin foil will cause sticking and nothing at all is just a nightmare to clean, so parchment is a must! Lay out bacon so it slightly overlaps on the fat side. I like fatty bacon so usually this doesn’t matter for me, but if you have lean bacon, make sure to overlap the fat and not the meaty part.

Once over is heated to 400, pop it in for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, take it out and flip it. The bacon will have shrunk so you no longer have to overlap. Put it back in the over for 10-15 minutes depending on how crispy you like your bacon. For me it’s 10 minutes while I cook my eggs.

And that is all folks. No mess, no splatters and perfectly straight and crispy bacon every single time!!
