Oven Fried Bacon

Oven fried bacon

Bacon.  It’s yummy, and a great addiction addition to any meal.  But when cooking for a large family, it can be tedious to sit over that cast iron skillet to cook up a pound for everyone to devour in 5 minutes.  That’s when the oven and 2 cookie sheets make Saturday morning so much easier!

Cooking bacon up in the oven is quick and requires little hands on time.  And keeps those little fingers from sneaking a piece when you’re not looking.  No getting popped with bacon grease either, I can hear you cheer from here.

Frugal Tip:Drain the bacon grease into a jar by tilting the cookie sheet to one corner, save this liquid gold for frying up eggs or hash browns!  Have leftover bacon?  Make this chocolate covered bacon for a sweet treat.

  1. […] Friday night was Date Night (Woo!!) so we went to a movie and made dinner together at home. We had Brinner. Have you ever had Brinner, aka Breakfast for Dinner? It’s a fav in our house, plus I love that the name comes from one of my all time favorite shows, Scrubs. Oh Brinner…sigh. You are so good. Anyways…we made sprouted flour pancakes (DaNelle’s e-book recipe), fried eggs, and oven fried bacon. […]
