This is an easy way to make side pork in the oven. No mess, easy clean-up and the results are great. A teacher friend told me this is how her grandmother made it. Definately not for the calorie counters.


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Take an old cookie sheet. Spray it with Pam, In a bag, combine all ingredients except the side pork.
  3. Then add one strip at a time, coat evenly.
  4. Lay on baking sheet.
  5. Do this until they are all coated.
  6. About half way through the baking time, check and turn over with a tong.

Thank so much for the GREAT recipe. We have been eating side pork for many years and this is the first time we really enjoyed it. It wasn't greasy and tasted so yummy. I didn't use the season salt cause both my husband and I have heart conditions so no salt. But I did add ground rosemary, the granulated garlic and fresh ground black pepper to the flour. Wow! We will never go back to plain old side pork.

Wow. This was amazing - Thank you! I used the dripping for gravy and had mashed potatoes with this. I am not a bacon lover and this was the perfect recipe for me! Everything I love about bacon without the overly salty and overwhelming "bacon" flavor. I could even cut down on the amount of seasoned salt. It was like "fine" bacon... I will be making this again!

Can't believe there aren't any other reviews for this great 'Easy Side Pork'!!! We'd never cooked side pork before and were more than pleasantly surprised. As mentioned elsewhere, you'll never look at bacon the same way again. I could see adding black pepper or some other spices. Great (and easy) recipe!
