Why This Recipe Works
Our oven-fried bacon recipe is a revelation. Cooking bacon in the oven has many advantages. First, the oven gives you a larger margin of error (a couple of minutes) than the skillet when it comes to timing. Second, the oven cooks the bacon strips more consistently; when part of the bacon is done, all of it is done—there are no raw or burnt spots. And the only thing you need to do, following our oven-fried bacon recipe, once the bacon's in the oven, is to turn the pan halfway through cooking.
