The easiest, safest, and no-mess way to get bacon cooked just right in minutes.

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 2 pieces per serving


  • uncooked bacon, regular cut


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Prepare a shallow baking pan by placing a footed wire rack or a piece of parchment paper in it.
  3. Place bacon strips in a single layer on the rack or paper.
  4. Place in oven and bake for 15-18 minutes for floppy bacon or 20-22 minutes for crispy bacon.


  • Ovens heat differently, so modify the cooking time to suit your oven by keeping an eye on the bacon as it cooks.
  • Add baking time for thick-cut bacon.
  • Uncooked bacon can be touching but not laying on each other for even results.
