This is the best way for cooking bacon, crispy, flatish, and with little clean up.
Cover a baking sheet with foil, curling the edges up so the grease doesn't drip. Lay the bacon flat on top, crack a little pepper on, if you like and bake at 425, its perfect for us in 9 minutes, but id start checking after 7, it could take as long as 15, if you into extra crispy.
Remove the bacon and drain on a paper towel, dont attempt to toss the grease til it's cooled.
Once youve found the perfect timing, Grease splattered counter tops will be a distant memory.
