Bakin’ Bacon

“Well, of course,” you might think, but just in case you haven’t thought of it, you can put away that frying pan and make it easier on yourself.


Baked Bacon

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

2. Arrange bacon in a single layer in a large baking dish or cookie sheet with raised edges.  

3. Place pan on middle wrack and bake 20-30 minutes or until browned and crispy.

4. Immediately remove from pan with spatula and pat off excess fat with paper towels.  (I save grease to season other dishes.)

Quote from my mom—“My daddy lived to be 91 and he ate bacon and eggs for breakfast every day of his life.” (Still, a daily diet of bacon might not be the best plan. Smile)

Mrs Smith, what a great idea! I love the smell of bacon frying in a pan. Does bacon baking smell just as good?

Mrs. Smith said...

Mrs. R, it definitely smells good. Our favorite is maple flavored bacon. Even if I cook it in the middle of the afternoon, everyone migrates to the kitchen in a hurry!

I almost always bake bacon. I never fry it ... either cook in the microwave or the oven, but the oven is my favorite. I like to line the baking pan with foil so it is very easy to clean after pouring off the grease.

Mrs. T, baked is my favorite too. My mom and grandmother always fried bacon, and frying anything is such a chore to me. I love the ease of popping in the oven so much better.

It's good to know who the artist is that did the painting on my post "A Saving Faith." Fred Swan from Vermont--I will have to remember that because I really love that painting. Thank you for telling me. :)

Good afternoon Mrs Smith! I love the smell of bacon and eggs, here in Italy we are used to eat this for dinner with some good bread! It's always so good!

Thank you so much Mrs.Smith! Thank you for your words of encouragements!
Very very nice to meet you!
I wish you a very blessed 2013 too!

I visited your blog today, and I thought it was so charming. I love all the vintage cards on here. My sister first introduced me to these vintage cards years ago, and ever since then, I was hooked. You have many creative ideas, and your posts are so simple and pretty. Me and my daughters also have a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is lovely, and very cheerful to me. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
