Kittencal's Method for Oven Cooked Bacon

"When I make this I make lots and then freeze in bags using my Food Saver storage system, this method saves time and not to mention the greasy clean up that comes with frying, I pour the grease into a Pyrex measuring cup then save and refrigerate overnight or until hard then scoop out a few tablespoons at a time, freeze on plates then I place in freezer bags to use in recipes to add flavor, you may save or discard the grease --- since RZ system would not accept one ingredient I have listed 1-1/2 pounds bacon separately, you may of course use as much as you like."

    I've been cooking bacon this way for more than 35 years...never thought about the freezing and storing for later use issue, but it's a great idea. I use a grill 'pan' that has small holes for drainage, rather like an old-style broiler pan. I don't use foil... What I like best about this method is that the bacon is less salty and doesn't cook in it's own fat....and it's just plain easier than standing over a grease-spitting frying pan!

    This was so much easier to make then cooking it on the stove. I used turkey bacon and this only took five minutes to cook in my oven.
