Oven-Fried Bacon
Serves 4 to 6

Use a large, rimmed baking sheet that is shallow enough to promote browning, yet tall enough (at least ¾ inch in height) to contain the rendered bacon fat. If cooking more than one tray of bacon, exchange their oven positions once about halfway through the cooking process.

12 slices bacon, thin- or thick-cut

Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 400 degrees. Arrange bacon slices in baking sheet or other shallow baking pan. Roast until fat begins to render, 5 to 6 minutes; rotate pan front to back. Continue roasting until bacon is crisp and brown, 5 to 6 minutes longer for thin-sliced bacon, 8 to 10 minutes for thick-cut. Transfer with tongs to paper towel–lined plate, drain, and serve.
