Bacon in the Oven

Bacon is delicious. Low-carb and keto friendly, this is how you can make a large batch of bacon in the oven – perfectly to your liking, every time! But first, we need to decide the temperature and cooking time.

Melts in your mouth

375°F / 190°C for 35-45 minutes

Meaty bite

425°F / 220°C for 20-30 minutes

INGREDIENTS

  • bacon, preferably thick cut

HARDWARE

  • baking sheet
  • aluminum foil
  • an oven (duh)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to the desired temperature (see above for details)
  2. Line your baking sheet with aluminum foil in a way to prevent leakage of the bacon grease. It is a pain to clean, trust me.
  3. Lay your bacon flat on the foil about an 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart. This will allow it room to crisp evenly
  4. Place your bacon in the oven. The oven doesn’t have to be at the desired temprature, it’s okay if it is heating up.
  5. Bake the oven from 20-30 minutes if cooking on high heat, or 35-45 minutes if cooking on low heat. Make sure to watch the bacon for your desired brownness.
  6. Once the bacon is at your desired color, remove it from the oven.
  7. Line a plate with paper towels and move the bacon from the baking sheet onto this plate. This will absorb the extra grease of the bacon.
  8. OPTIONAL: Store the bacon grease that was rendered on the tray
  9. Carefully wrap up the aluminum foil off the baking sheet while the bacon cools off.
  10. Enjoy the deliciousness that is bacon!
