– 6 slices bacon or any number of strips and thickness you like (see notes for recommendations) – Nonstick cooking spray
Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with foil. Set an oven-safe rack on top of the foil. 1. Spray the rack with nonstick spray for an extra layer of protection to keep the bacon from sticking. Arrange the slices in a single layer.
Pop the pan into a 400 degree F oven, and try to be patient as your kitchen fills with the tantalizing aroma of freshly cooked, hot bacon.
Remove the bacon once it has reached your desired level of crispiness. You can devour it directly off the rack, but I like to pat it dry with paper towels first. Removing the excess grease will keep it crispy for longer, whether you eat it right away or save it for another use.
