Hi my name is Dana Johnson and I'd like to share with you how to oven bake bacon. And some reasons you might want to do this, may be for instance you don't have enough room on your cook top at the time to fry your bacon so you can make it in the oven. Or if you're doing mass quantities of bacon it's also a very efficient method. So all you need is a baking sheet, some aluminum foil and you're baking. You want to line your pan. I'm going to make a little crease in the edge just so that bacon grease doesn't ooze off into my pan and it'll be less mess for me later. Okay, time to take our bacon on the foil and put it inside of a cold oven. I'm going to place it on the center rack. Close the door, turn your selection to bake, 400 degrees, 17-20 minutes. See you then. It's perfect. And there we have our finished product of our oven baked bacon. For more recipes please see me at
