Most of you know by now that I am crazy obsessed with bacon. My Instagram posts follow this kinda pattern…photos of Telluride, cocktails and my true love…smoky bacon.

I cook it many times per week, only problem is all the splatters ALL over my stove top. Not to mention I am freaked that I am gonna get a bacon grease splatter burn.

Not any more. Now I am obsessed with BAKED Bacon. A fool proof way to get your bacon on…

This post is BACON PORN. You need to just indulge. If you are smitten by smoked piggy then you are in the right place.

I am so smitten I even wear tee shirts with pigs on em…

I also have a Bacon Pinterest Board …you can follow that. It’s updated regularly.

If you are not into pig then please come back on Wednesday when I will share a cool ‘n creamy treat.

But for now it’s bacon.

All you need to do:

  • Pre-Heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit with the rack in the middle.
  • Lay bacon flat on a foil or parchment covered baking sheet. (This will make clean up so much easier!)
  • Bake for about 15-18 minutes depending on how thickly cut your bacon or to desired doneness.
  • Bacon will begin to curl & crisp up but be sure it does not burn.
  • Turn the pan once during baking so your strips brown evenly.
  • Remove from the oven and transfer bacon to paper towel lined plates to drain.

What are a few of my bacon brands? Well I try to go as natural as possible…Niman Ranch & Applegate Farms are two favorites.

Living here in the mountains there is always a reason to bake bacon (or at least I say so.) The mornings are crisp and very bacon friendly…so are the afternoons and evenings.

Bacon is on virtually all my salads, and it is awesome on this orzo pasta too…

Bacon is crazy good on Irish Nachos too…

Let it be known that bacon often does not get to the recipe it’s meant for.

Fingers reach, grab and munch very quickly…
