I love bacon. Who doesn't?! But I hate cooking bacon--the splatter of grease, the occasional burns, the excess grease on the surface of the cooked bacon, the bacon that curls up into inappropriate shapes for sandwiches, my inability to cook bacon to the perfect crispness (I either burn it or under cook it. ick.)
This is the simplest recipe ever. For real.
recipe based on a Rachael Ray episode
1/2 pound bacon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil (be sure to line the foil up the edges to contain all of the grease.) Place a wire cooling rack inside the baking sheet to form a rack for the bacon. Arrange bacon strips on the rack. Bake for 15-20 minutes until bacon is crisp.
Remove bacon from the pan and enjoy!
Once grease is cooled, wrap up tin foil to contain the grease and throw away.
