Bakin’ Better Bacon

You’ll never use your frying pan again once you’ve tried this bacon cooking method.  Your Bacon turns out cripsy without having to constantly turn it, or get burnt by splatters of grease.

If you’d rather cook your bacon flat, you’ll find that it doesn’t curl, making it ideal for BLT sandwiches.

  • Prep: 2 Mins
  • Cook: 15-20 Mins
  • Portions: 2-4

Ingredients You'll Need

  • 1 Pound or More Meridian Smokehouse Bacon


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (175 degrees C)
  2. Line a baking sheet (with raised edges) with aluminum foil
  3. Arrange bacon on baking sheet in heart shapes – it’s okay if they overlap or twist a bit. Alternatively, you can lay out the strips flat in a single layer with the edges touching or slightly overlapping
  4. Bake in preheated oven to desired degree of doneness, 10 to 15 minutes flipping once
  5. Remove bacon from the baking sheet with tongs or a fork, and rest on a paper towel-lined plate

I cook my bacon on a “George Foreman” grill. It cooks both sides, no splatter, very little grease and it turns out as crispy as you want to make it, Great for bacon lovers who don’t want bacon calories.
I checked the calories (by weight) in a pack of bacon, then weighed the run-off and found that one rasher (slice) of bacon only amounted to approx.30 calories.

Great suggestion Val! Healthier bacon is always a great idea!
