If any of you out there are still pan frying your bacon on a regular basis, we need to talk. Why smell up the back recesses of you hacienda, while at the same time laying down a layer of grease on the surrounding surfaces of your stove. Not to mention it takes forever if you only have one pan, and cooks unevenly to boot! Baking your bacon in the oven is an idea who’s time has come. You get beautiful, evenly cooked, nicely formed bacon. Plus, it frees up stove top space if you need to flip pancakes. It doesn’t cook while swimming in it’s own grease, and it gives you an opportunity to doozy-up your bacon with yummy things like maple syrup, or brown sugar.
