Crispy Oven-Baked Bacon

Start with a cold oven.

Line baking sheet with foil.

Arrange bacon on foil and place the baking sheet on the center rack of a COLD oven. Turn oven to 400 degrees.

Bake for 17-20 minutes. Check to see if bacon is golden brown, but not excessively crisp. You may want to turn the broiler on for the last few minutes to ensure that it is crispy.

Remove from oven and transfer bacon to a pan or plate lined with paper towel to absorb the fat. Enjoy!

**The exact baking time depends on the thickness of the bacon and how quickly your oven reaches the target temperature.**
