Hack your Kitchen: Cooking Bacon

My family loves bacon, but I don’t love frying it. Honestly, I need to stay far far away from a frying pan for my own safety as well for the safety of others. So I was so thankful to find this hack on how to cook it not only because it avoids the frying pan, but also because I can cook more and faster. The trick is to use your oven instead of the stovetop.


  • Baking sheet
  • Tongs
  • Aluminum foil
  • Paper towels
  • Plate
  • Knife


  • Bacon


  1. Preheat your oven to 410.
  2. Layer a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. Next, layer your bacon strips on top of the aluminum. I like to cut my slab of bacon in half because it makes the strips more manageable.
  4. Place in oven for ten minutes. Depending on how crispy you like your bacon, you might need to add some more minutes, but be careful not to burn. I like my bacon extra crispy, so usually add three more minutes. My husband and son prefer theirs at the ten minute mark. –I am out numbered!
  5. Using tongs, transfer your bacon to a paper towel layered plate and cover with more paper. This will help soak up the grease.
  6. Enjoy!
