"fried" Bacon in the Oven

Total Time
20mins
Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins

A easy & no clean up way to do your bacon. I had to add a T. of pepper because you need more then 1 ingriedent, skip unless you want your bacon peppery!

Directions

  1. To avoid grease splatters on the top of your stove or having to wash an extra splatter screen, simply put bacon in a cast iron skillet with the lid on in a preheated 450* oven for about 15 minutes.
  2. Remove the skillet, drain the bacon, and the oven stays clean and so does the top of your stove.
  3. Enjoy now and/or you can crumble up the leftover bacon to use in omelets or other recipes for later.
  4. Simply put them in a freezer bag and use later.
  5. It's especially efficient when you've already heated the oven for another dish.

Thanks so much for mentioning this! I don't know why I never thought of it, but I didn't -- and this was SO much easier and neater than frying it in a pan. It wasn't just that I could avoid the splatter -- it's that I could do other things while the bacon was cooking. Thanks so very much for posting this!
