1/2-1 pound bacon strips
1 sheet parchment paper
1 baking sheet with sides
Preheat oven to 425ºF. Line the baking sheet with the parchment paper. The paper should come up the sides, ideally. Lay the bacon strips out next to each other over the parchment. Bacon strips can touch each other, but should not overlap.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until bacon is cooked through and golden brown. Remove from oven and drain on paper towels, cooling slightly to allow bacon to crisp. Serve warm or store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
Makes 1/2-1 pound of bacon.
