Best way to cook bacon

I love bacon.  But, I hate cleaning the kitchen after cooking it.  Always looking for shortcuts in my traditional-foods kitchen I came up with this method which is not only a time-saver, but also produces the crispest bacon in the land.

  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
  • Place bacon (from pastured pigs) on cooling racks in a cookie sheet with sides.
  • Put in oven for 10 minutes then turn off oven.
  • Leave in oven for another 10 minutes (I know it is tempting to open the door and look at it, but trust me, the bacon will still be there).
  • Remove and enjoy.  And save that perfect grease for cooking eggs, sauteing veggies, whatever. 
  • Put leftovers in an airtight container in refrigerator.  Simply reheat in a toaster oven as desired.

This method also works perfectly for sausage cut into 1/2 to 1 inch slices.  Yummmm.
