Okay, so who is with me!?  I HATE frying bacon!  I don't use that word very often, but on very few occassions I use that word quite honestly!  Frying bacon has NEVER been a fun thing for me.  I can't stand the MESS it makes when fried up in a pan on the stove, and how it cooks so unevenly in the pan.  Keeping the temperature a right level in the frying pan is something I never did learn the science of.  Microwave was the next best thing, but even then it was hot to handle the dish in which you had to remove from the microwave, the MESS it created in my microwave from the grease splattering as it popped even under the paper towel, draining the hot grease, etc.  You get my point!  This task in my kitchen got so frustrating I completely skipped making any bacon at all!  I boycotted it with all I had! :) 

Fast forward, my dear hubby LOVES bacon!  I couldn't continue to be a cruel wife, so when I figured out how to FINALLY cook bacon, it's a REGULAR thing in our home now! :)  And everyone is happy!  My kids will eat and eat and eat and EAT bacon now! :)

Here's the trick! Your problems have now been solved and you won't BELIEVE what a difference this makes! Take a cookie sheet jelly roll WITH SIDES. Put a piece of foil on the bottom of that cookie sheet. Take your pound of bacon and lay each piece flat one right next to each other. They can be touching just a little. Put your pan in a preheated oven at 400 degrees. Bake for about 30 minutes, less or more depending upon your bacon crispiness likings. Take out of the oven, and let sit for a few minutes. I then take a plate and put paper towels on it and take the bacon and let it "degrease." Flipping on each side.

Not only does your bacon LOOK appealing with not such an ugly deformation, but it's PERFECT for things like bacon to top on your hamburger to make your bacon cheesebureger OR bacon for your BLT's in the summer!  OH MY! 

Alright, so there you have it! :)  THAT EASY & THAT SIMPLE! to eat some bacon in  my fresh egg omelet from our chickens! :)  Top of the day to you! ;)

This is a great idea! I will not let my husband cook bacon anymore. He did it once at my studio loft before we were married. Needless to say the bacon he burned smelled my place up including my clothes for an entire week. My coworkers teased me that I tasted "yummy."
