Effortless bacon

Sometimes you don't want to stand over a hot skillet for 20 minutes, dodging hot bacon grease, you know?

I like to cook whole packages of bacon at a time, then save them in a Ziploc bag and use them in wraps or as a quick breakfast boost throughout the week. This is a great way to cook a lot of bacon at once, with a minimum of effort.

Line a cookie sheet with foil. Fold the edges up so the bacon grease won't drip over the sides.

Line the foil with strips of raw bacon.

Put the sheet in a cold oven.

Turn the oven on and set it to 400 degrees.

Come back in about 20 minutes. At that point keep checking the bacon every couple of minutes until it's done the way you like it.

Remove the sheet, remove the bacon immediately onto paper towels, and fold up the foil so that you can easily pour off the bacon grease and save it.

Put the cookie sheet away and throw away the foil.

All done!
