1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and position your rack as low as it will go inside your oven.

2. Line a baking sheet with tin foil. (This will make clean up much easier later!) Place the bacon on the sheet but do not have them overlap. They can be close together, but if they touch, they will stick together.

3. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the bacon a deep golden-brown and appears crispy. The bacon will sputter as it does on a stovetop, but it shouldn’t be nearly as messy in the oven. When you remove the bacon, pour off the excess grease.

4. Remove the bacon from the sheet and allow it to cool on top of paper towels to drain the remaining grease. Serve immediately while hot, and enjoy! (You can also refrigerate for a week or freeze for up to 3 months!)

This recipe will leave your bacon crispy on the outside but chewier in the middle, so if you want more of a crisp, modify the thickness of your bacon, or try cooking it on top of a metal cookie sheet on top of the baking pan.
