How To Cook Thick Bacon In Oven

All you need to know about: How To Cook Thick Bacon In Oven.


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (176°C).

2. Place the bacon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil and arrange the slices in a single layer.

3. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the bacon is cooked to your desired crispness.

4. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and transfer the bacon slices to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.


• Make sure you use thick-cut bacon when cooking in the oven. Thinner slices can overcook and become too crispy.

• If you want the bacon to be extra crisp, you can use a higher temperature (400°F/204°C).

• If you prefer your bacon less crispy, you can cook it at a lower temperature (325°F/163°C).

• You can also add a sprinkle of brown sugar or maple syrup to the bacon before baking for a sweet and savory flavor.

• Keep an eye on the bacon while it’s in the oven – it can quickly go from perfectly cooked to overdone.
