Perfect! I needed pre-cooked bacon for two different recipes so did 5 strips - 3 with pepper and 2 plain. At 17 minutes I took them out but wanted them a bit crispier so put back for 2 more minutes and it was just what I needed. Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • cooking spray
  • 1 lb bacon


  1. Line rimmed baking sheet with foil. Coat lightly with oil spray.
  2. Lay out bacon in a single layer. Put in a cold oven.
  3. Turn on to 400°F; Set timer for 17 minutes.
  4. When the 17 minutes is up, check every 1-2 minutes until done. It will look slightly undercooked in the oven. Take it out now & it will be perfect - crispy but not hard.
  5. variations:.
  6. 1. sprinkle with brown sugar before baking.
  7. 2. sprinkle with black pepper before baking.
  8. 3. lightly coat with jerk seasoning before baking.
