The other day I announced that I was teaming up with some other great bloggers to bring you a month of bacon recipes! I hope you have stretchy pants for the duration of the month, judging by some of the recipes I’ve already seen, we’re going to be needing them! 🙂
Today, I have a simple and basic “recipe” …. A few years ago, I learned I could bake my bacon in the oven and I wouldn’t have to worry about the bacon grease burns! I love that my bacon cooks up nice and crisp – and mostly flat and straight! It’s the OCD in me.
For those who already know about Oven-Fried Bacon, this is elementary …. for those of you who have never tried it – be prepared to fall in love! It could not be simpler! I like mine a little more on the crisp side, so I bake mine for the longest time listed …. sometimes a bit longer if I buy the thick cut bacon!
If you’re a fan of bacon, you will want to follow all of the blogs participating in Bacon Month – and be sure to look for our hashtags #putsomepiginit and #baconmonth on social media! We’ve got lots of bacon-y goodness to share! 🙂
Each week during bacon month, we’re giving away a bacon-themed cookbook. Be sure to enter every week for a chance to win!
