Sunday morning breakfast has become a tradition in the Cook household.  I like to make pancakes, scrambled eggs, and bacon!  I have found a way to make bacon that is crispy, not greasy, and just down right delicious! 

What you'll need:

Baking Sheet
Cooling Wrack
Paper towels
Salt/Pepper OR Brown Sugar/Cayenne Pepper

How to do it:
  • Preheat oven to 425
  • Cover your baking sheet with tin foil, it makes for much easier clean up!

  • Place the wrack on the baking sheet and lay the bacon out across it  The wrack lets the fat drip off the bacon instead of it laying in fat and eating up grease!

  • Sprinkle with a tiny bit of salt and pepper, if you want to be adventurous use some brown sugar and cayenne pepper instead.  The sugar vs spicy combo is mind blowing!
  • Cook for 25-30 minutes, the longer you leave it in the crispier the bacon will be, but make sure to watch it so that it doesn't burn. (Here's what it looks like when it comes out)

  • When you take it out of the oven and take it off the wrack immediately place it on a plate that is covered in paper towel and blot it with another piece.  Get as much of that awful grease off of it as you possibly can! (See how wet the paper towel looks?)
There you have it, you're finished!  Get to enjoy your less greasy, more crispy grub my friends!  Oh and be grateful that you put down that tin foil because it really does make this a lot easier to clean up!
