Making perfect bacon every time is easy.
Line a pan with the bacon. I use a glass baking pan, but I’ve also used steel and aluminum baking sheets. Metal baking sheets might warp.
Put the pan into a cold, unheated oven. Middle rack is fine.
Set the oven to bake at 400°F (204°C). Set the timer for 20 minutes.
It might take a few more or a few less depending on your own oven, so watch it close the first time.
Remove the pan from the oven.
Place the bacon on a plate (or a plate lined with a paper towel if you’re grease averse). Enjoy the best, crispiest, most delicious bacon you’ve ever had.
