Oven Roasted Bacon

Oven Roasted Bacon

The only thing better than bacon is oven roasted bacon. Why? Because you get all the bacon without battling the fire breathing dragon that is a stove top pan of bacon grease.

Bonus round: using a rack drains excess fat away, resulting in super crispy bacon that’s not chewy or rubbery. Real bacon is a treat, not a daily ingredient, so let’s do it right.

Super crispy bacon from the oven, effortlessly.


  • 1 package smoked center cut bacon, or portion thereof


  1. Place oven rack in bottom position and preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and place a cooling rack on the sheet. If desired, fold the foil up around the rack to reduce spatter.
  2. Place bacon in a single layer on rack. No need to leave space between the slices as long as they don’t overlap. 
  3. Cook bacon 15-20 minutes, depending on desired crispness. Keep an eye on it after 15 minutes. 
  4. Remove from oven and transfer bacon to a large plate lined with paper towel to finish draining. 
  5. Serve immediately or cool further before crumbling.
