Several years ago I worked at a camp and conference center. We had a full time chef that prepared some pretty amazing meals for groups of 50 to groups of 300 plus. One morning I saw how he made the breakfast bacon on large sheet pans baked in the oven. I thought that was genius. I don't know how many times I have stood in front of the stove frying three batches of bacon to make an entire package. Well, no more - and using parchment paper on the bottom of the sheet pan makes clean up a snap.
1 package of your favorite uncooked bacon
1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place parchment paper on a sheet pan that has at least a 1" edge
2) Arrange individual bacon slices on the parchment paper
3) Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the preferred state of brown crispy goodness is reached. Remove with a fork and drain on paper towel.
