No need to worry about clean up or grease splatter with this easy tutorial on how to cook bacon in the oven for the crispiest bacon. Just preheat, line up the bacon and bake and you have the perfect bacon in under 15 minutes!


  • 1 lb thick cut, organic bacon strips
  • parchment paper (tin foil works too)
  • baking sheet


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment.
  3. Lay down strips onto parchment. Do not overcrowd.
  4. You will need two sheets for 1lb of bacon.
  5. Bake for 14 minutes for crispy bacon. Bake for slightly less if you like it less crispy and slightly more for extra crispy.*
  6. Remove bacon from oven and place on a plate lined with paper towel.
  7. Pat with an additional paper towel to remove extra grease.
  8. Serve warm.

*This time may vary depending on oven and how many baking sheets you have in the oven. 14 minutes is my magic number but pay close attention to make sure you get the texture you like.

**I have not tried this with turkey bacon but I suspect it would be around the same time.
