How to Cook Bacon in the Oven

My husband loves bacon. I do not. This is a problem. Ok, it's not a huge problem but my issue with cooking bacon is that it seems like grease is everywhere! I have tried cooking it in the microwave but he doesn't like that. Then I saw a brilliant idea on Pinterest to cook bacon in the oven. So I tried it and it worked perfectly for me, no splattering grease and my husband said it was the best bacon ever!
This is what I did:
10 pieces thick-sliced bacon
Line a baking sheet (11x15 with sides) with parchment paper
I placed the bacon slices on my baking sheet. My baking sheet was facing me (horizontally - the 15" side), place the bacon vertically. Place the baking sheet into a cold oven and turn the oven on to 375F. Bake for about 25 minutes. My husband likes his bacon crispy but not too crunchy.  Dab excess grease off the bacon with a paper towel after it's cooked. No greasy stove!

Almost done!

    Do you cover the bacon in the oven so it doesn't splash grease all over the inside of the oven??

  2. I did not cover mine in the oven and it did not splash any grease. But I suppose you could cover it with foil or parchment paper.
    Thanks for the question!
