Cooking bacon in the oven is so much easier and less messy then cooking it in a skillet. The best part is that you can make large batches at a time while cooking the rest of the meal so everything gets done about the same time and can be served hot.

Preheat oven to 375F. Line two rimmed baking sheets with aluminum foil. Lay the bacon strips flat on the foil making sure that no pieces overlap. Bake about 10-15 minutes to desired doneness, flipping the bacon every five minutes. Transfer to paper towel lined plates to drain.
