“This is the way to get crisp bacon without having to constantly turn it, watch over it, or get burnt by splatters of grease. It 'fries' up flat and doesn't curl, which looks great beside a breakfast plate of eggs, and makes BLT sandwiches much easier. Very nice when feeding a family or crowd.” – by JOYCE

I am the submitter to this recipe. No need to line your cookie sheet. Allrecipes did not include that you must use a cookie sheet with raised edges, make sure it is THICK sliced bacon, the thin will burn too quickly and to be very cautious when taking the bacon out of the oven. I usually drain mine before TURNING it after 7 minutes. I hope that this helps. Enjoy!
This method of cooking bacon when you're either cooking a big breakfast or when you're making a lot of bacon is like having a kitchen assistant! More important, it turns out beautifully. However, I always use an oven temperature of 400 degrees, and find it takes 15-20 minutes. I've heard of brushing the bacon with maple syrup or sprinkling on brown sugar during the last few minutes of baking, but I've never tried that. Thanks for passing this easy cooking method along to others.
I have been doing this for years as I learned it in a restaurant I worked at. I line my baking sheet with foil. I didn't see any one mention this tip: Lay a sheet of foil over the top loosely to prevent spattering all over your oven! Remove top foil about 5 minutes before its finished baking for final crisping(I pour off the excess grease at this point,too.)
