"fried" Bacon in the Oven

Total Time
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!


  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!
