Hack: The Best Way to Cook Bacon

We eat a lot of bacon, and we've found an quick, no-mess method 

for it to be perfectly cooked every time! 

You will need

  • Bacon
  • Any old baking pan
  • Silicone Baking Mats (We've used and loved these for years to make the best bacon, cookies, fish, roasted veggies, and more!)

Directions

This is so easy, sometimes we don't even pre-heat the oven!   

  1. Place a silicone baking mat on top of a baking pan, choosing a pan that is just smaller than the mat to easily contain grease.
  2. Line up your bacon on the mat, and it's ok if any pieces overlap. 
  3. Bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 20-25 minutes, until bacon reaches desired crispness. 
  4. Once you remove from the oven, carefully and immediately place bacon over paper towels to drain off any excess grease.
Cleanup is easy and simple. If you want to save the grease, you can carefully pour out of the pan when hot. If you want to discard or compost the grease, wait until cool and you can easily scrape off of the silicone mat. The mat is easily cleaned in warm soapy water or in the top rack of your dishwasher!
