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!
Great idea! I've used the cold oven method before with a rack although often that comes out a bit too crunchy. This was an ideal in-between and certainly makes a lot less mess.
What an easy and great way to make bacon. I cooked 1/2 lb for a potato salad. Made for Aus/NZ tag.
I quite often cook my bacon in the oven but usually put into a hot oven but by putting in a cold one it didn't curl up I baked for 19 minutes and it was perfect to make a bacon sandwich with for me but if making for the DH I would need to cook a lot longer as he likes his really, really crispy. Also I lined my tray with baking paper so did not worry about the oil, thank you Elmotoo, made for Auussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap #83 December 2013.
This really is PERFECT!!!! We've made this twice now, both times with equally fantastic results.<br/>DH is over the moon with happiness now that his bacon can be cooked just the way he likes it, and I am too, as I'm going to get bacon sandwiches cooked for me every weekend now!!!<br/>Winners all round.....big thanks Elmotoo.<br/>Made for AUS/NZ RECIPE SWAP #76.
Simplicity at it's best.
What can I say "This just turned out perfectly!
I followed the time exactly and the bacon was just right for this family.
I will make bacon like this a lot more often now.
