Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400 °F (204 °C) and line a sheet with foil. Use a large, rimmed baking sheet to catch the grease. Lining the bottom and sides of the sheet with aluminum foil will make clean up easier.

Step 2

Lay the bacon in a single layer on the foil. Get out 1 pound (453 g) of thick-cut bacon and lay the strips in a single layer on the foil. The strips can touch each other, but avoid overlapping them or they won't cook evenly.If you want crispier bacon, set a baking rack on the foil-lined sheet. Arrange the bacon on the rack, so air circulates under the bacon as it cooks.

Step 3

Bake the thick-cut bacon for 10 minutes. Put the sheet in the preheated oven and cook the bacon for 10 minutes before you check it. Depending on how thick the bacon is and how chewy you like your bacon, it could be finished after 10 minutes.

Step 4

Cook the bacon for another 10 minutes, if desired. If you want your bacon to crisp up more, continue to cook it for another 10 minutes before you check it again. You don't need to flip the bacon.

Step 5

Transfer the bacon to a plate and serve it. Lay a few paper towels on a plate or platter and wear oven mitts to take the sheet of bacon out of the oven. Use tongs to transfer the bacon to the plate. The paper towels will absorb excess grease. Serve the bacon immediately.

Step 6

Store leftover bacon for 4 to 5 days in the refrigerator. Place the bacon in an airtight container. You can use the bacon while it's cold, keeping in mind that the bacon will lose its crispiness as it's stored. To reheat the bacon, heat the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until the bacon is heated through.You can also reheat the bacon in the microwave. Set the bacon on a microwave-safe plate and heat the bacon in 20-second increments until it's heated through.
