Perfect Circle B Ranch Bacon
When I lived in Branchburg, NJ, I owned and operated Nadia Gourmet Caterers. I learned from my chefs that the quickest way to cook bacon was in the oven. Cooking for a large crowd standing over the stove and cooking bacon is very time consuming. I have to admit that I was never a fan of frying bacon, because it made a mess and it just seemed to take to long to get the bacon crispy. I did make it in the microwave (Gasp) for years...yes looking back it was not a great idea.
The ingredients could not be simpler. One pound of Circle B Ranch Hickory Smoked Bacon or Circle B Ranch Nitrite Free Bacon.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.You will need a baking sheet and aluminum foil. Cover your baking sheet with aluminum foil and then arrange the bacon on the cooking sheet. Lay the bacon close to each other, but don't overlap.
Bake the Bacon in the oven and cook for about 15-20 minutes. I like to check the bacon after 10 minutes and turn the pan around in the oven. It cooks more evenly. Once the bacon is cooked, and as a side note we like our bacon well done. Remove the pan from the oven and place the bacon on a plate lined with paper towels. This will absorb the bacon grease and help the bacon crisp up. Serve immediately. If you do have any leftover it keeps really well in the refrigerator and you can always put it in the microwave to warm up.
