Tuesday Tip: Perfectly Crisp Bacon

Let's talk about bacon today. Because everything is better with bacon. But I hate it when you cook bacon in a skillet and it shrinks to about half of its original size, and it never seems to get crispy, just gets shorter and soggier.

After a friend of mine's husband (who is a butcher, so you know he knows all the tricks of the trade) suggested that I bake my bacon on a baking sheet on a rack, allowing it to cook from all sides, and remain straight as an arrow and crispy as all get out! So if you want the secret to perfectly cooked bacon, follow this simple tip.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Place a some tin foil on a baking sheet, then place a cooling rack or two on top of the foil. Lay your bacon cross the cooling racks and place into the oven. Bake for 20-30 minutes flipping halfway through, until your bacon reaches your desired crispiness.
