D-Feast Fridays: Makin' Bacon

Bacon.  It's yummy, but let's face it, a total pain to make.  I hate the cleaning up that comes with cooking bacon.  Or the painful burns if you get hit by some grease.  Even the lingering bacon smell wears on me after 5 hours.  That's why I love this method of makin' bacon!

Bacon in the oven... it's easy, a breeze to clean up, and I've found it doesn't stink up my house for hours afterwards.  Here's how you do it:

Line a cookie sheet with foil.  Arrange your bacon on the sheet like so:

Set your oven to 375 degrees F.  No need to pre-heat, I turn the oven on and put the cookie sheet in at the same time.  Cook for about 15 minutes, depending on how crisp you like it (and how hot your oven cooks).  My advice is to keep your eye on it after about 12 minutes. 

Bacon!  After you remove the bacon, let the cookie sheet sit for a bit until the grease solidifys a bit.  Then you just crumple up the foil and throw it away... so easy!

Or you can keep the foil and you'll be left with some nice bacon art... I think I'll call this one "Ghosts of Bacon Past".

As does she... maybe they're onto somthing?
Now go... enjoy some bacon. You know you want to.
