What is the best temperature to cook bacon?
- The main choices are 350, 375, 400 or 425 degrees Fahrenheit (177, 190, 204, and 218 degrees Celcius). I highly recommend cooking bacon in the oven is 400 degrees F! It’s a bit faster than lower temperatures, plus the bacon gets more crispy. Any higher and you tend to risk burning the edges.
Can I use a broiler pan to cook bacon?
Lay bacon out on rack on broiler pan (the roasting or broiler pan with a slotted top that comes with most ovens works very well).
You may place slices touching each other, or even overlapping slightly, since they will shrink while baking.
Bake for about 25-30 minutes (5 minutes less if you like less crispy bacon).
How do you cook bacon under the broiler?
- Turn the oven setting to high-temperature broil. Place bacon onto a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil. Place pan in the oven, on the middle rack. Broil for 5 minutes.
- Transfer the broiled bacon onto a paper towel to absorb grease. Fold the foil inward to contain the grease and discard. Done! All the bacon at once.

Oven baked bacon is easier to make and healthier than fried bacon. Baked bacon is hands-free to make, easier to clean up, and won’t splatter you with hot grease while you stand at the stove to babysit it.
