Bacon has its place in a healthy diet, but it can be kind of messy to cook. Baking it in the oven is much easier and it's done in less than 15 minutes will less mess!
Budget tip: save your bacon grease! Use it for cooking up eggs or sautéing veggies. It's a fat that is safe to cook at high temps and remember that eating fat doesn't make you fat!
12-15 strips of bacon (however many your pan can hold)
1) Preheat oven to 415*F
2) Lay strips of bacon on a foil-lined baking sheet in a single layer.
3) Bake the bacon for 12-15 minutes, until it reaches your desired doneness.
