Ever avoided bacon because you hate dealing with the grease? Don’t miss these simple instructions for cooking perfect no-mess bacon every single time!
If you’ve ever avoided making bacon because you just didn’t feel like dealing with the greasy mess left behind, this post might just change your life. You see, my husband was the exact same way. He loved eating bacon, but didn’t love cooking it. It was just too much cleanup.
And then two years ago, on our big summer road trip, we stayed with some friends in Indiana. Fred, a fellow stay-at-home-dad, introduced my husband Chuck to the genius technique that we have used ever since–the technique I am sharing with you today.
Some of you may already make bacon this way–you are obviously much smarter than we are! But for those of you who are stuck using a griddle or frying pan the way we were–take note. This post is about to change everything.
Quick & Easy No-Mess Bacon
Here is what you need:1 lb bacon large cookie sheet parchment paper
Step 1: Preheat oven to 415 degrees. Cut length of parchment paper longer and wider than cookie sheet.
Step 2: Fold up edges of parchment paper; trim excess so that each edge is approximately 1″ tall.
Step 3: Layout bacon on parchment paper.
Step 4: Bake 10 minutes; check and flip bacon and then cook 3-6 minutes longer. Cook longer for crispier bacon. Cooking time will differ depending on thickness of bacon.
Step 5: Toss parchment paper, blot grease with paper towel and serve. Could not be any easier!

A nightmare. Splatters all over the entire oven. Smoke makes fire alarm go off. Then you have to turn on self cleaning fir several hours. No thanks. This is the nastiest mess ever.
My son LOVES bacon. I usually say No due to the mess and smell. Tried the oven method and the house was Covered in Smoke. UGH! Its probably my older oven but still.
I will try microwave.
