how to cook bacon in the oven

I think that this is the best way to cook bacon in the oven because it's almost fool proof. You also don't get splattered with bacon grease as it cooks on the stove top, and it doesn't curl up in the pan either. Start with a cold oven. Layer the bacon either on foil or parchment paper. Place this into the oven and turn the oven on to 400 degrees. Say goodbye and walk away.
If the bacon is super thin, check at 15 minute. If it's thick sliced deli bacon, check closer to 20 minutes. You know your oven better than anyone, so you'll know if 15 minutes won't be enough or will be too long. You make the call. Remove the pan from the oven, place the bacon on a paper towel to properly drain and enjoy.
