How To Make Perfect Bacon in the Oven

1-2 lbs DLM Uncured Bacon, favorite variety
aluminum foil
1 to 2 baking sheets
paper towels

Preheat oven to 400°F. Place a rack in the lower third of the oven. Line a baking sheet with foil. Lay the bacon on the baking sheet in a single layer, close together but not overlapping. If necessary, use a second baking sheet.

Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake until the bacon is a deep golden-brown and crispy, 15 to 20 minutes. (Exact baking time will depend on the thickness of the bacon and how crispy you like it.)

Remove the bacon from the oven and use tongs to transfer it to a paper-lined platter to drain and finish crisping. Server immediately.

**Even Crispier Bacon**

Set a metal cooling rack over the foil-lined baking sheet and lay the raw bacon over the cooling rack. Elevating bacon allows it to cook from all sides and become extra-crispy.
