How to Make Perfect Bacon! (bacon in the oven.)
Father’s Day is only a few days away, and the kids are already busy making plans on how to give dad the best day. Gift giving for our Dad isn’t easy. There’s not a lot he needs, and the stuff he really wants- like movie projectors or fancy golf carts is not in the cards as a Father’s Day gift from the kids, lol.
To make Father’s Day special, the kids have planned a day full of his favorite things: keeping quiet so Dad can sleep in, a huge cup of coffee in his favorite mug, a delicious breakfast full of his favorite breakfast foods and a round of golf with friends.
For breakfast, our Dad is a bacon and eggs kind of guy; with bacon being the prime ingredient!
When a simple meal of bacon and eggs is on the menu, you want to make sure you have fresh eggs and premium bacon. I like to use the Wright® Brand Hickory Smoked Bacon; it’s thickly sliced, premium bacon. Wright Brand Bacon is made in Texas and has the bold bacon taste that our Dad loves.
Of course, Dad’s not the only one in our family that loves this bacon…
True story: Dad cooked up a package of this bacon for my Mother’s Day breakfast last month, and there might have been a few tears over the fact that I got 4 pieces of bacon while everyone else only got two. So we have now added a National Daughter Day and a National Son Day to the calendar this summer where on that day the daughter/son will get two extra pieces of bacon and will not have to empty the dishwasher. (Does your family love bacon too? Be sure to visit here for an offer when purchasing Wright Brand Bacon and more bacon recipe inspiration!)
Now on to the “meat” of this post… I’ve got the greatest bacon cooking hack to share with you today!
Have you ever tried baking your bacon in the oven?
Can I just say this is the best bacon cooking method ever? It takes a few additional minutes to cook bacon in the oven, but I’ll gladly trade standing over a hot stove, babysitting a frying pan of splattering bacon, with a few extra minutes in the oven.
How to Cook Bacon in the Oven
*Tips: I recommend using the broiler pan kit that comes with your oven or an ovenproof cooling rack on a baking sheet. You can use a regular baking sheet, but the broiler pan allows for more air circulation, and you won’t need to flip the bacon.
- Wright Brand Bacon
- Baking Sheet with rack*
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- Cover baking sheet with foil and place rack over the sheet.
- Evenly spread bacon over the rack, without overlapping bacon. (The foil will catch all the bacon drippings for simple clean up.)
- Bake bacon for 15 to 25 minute or until your bacon is cooked to your desired crispiness. The Wright Brand Bacon is very thick and hearty, so in my oven, it cooked for the full 25 minutes. Thinner bacon will take less time.
Doesn’t the bacon look amazing? Crispy and perfectly cooked!
Dad will love his special breakfast!
You can find Wright Brand Bacon at your local H-E-B location. (It’s available in both Hickory Smoked and Applewood Smoked.)
Now it’s your turn! What’s your favorite breakfast to cook for Father’s Day?
