Honey Chipotle Glazed Baked Bacon... EASY EASY EASY

Pin It Now!

This is a two part blog post... Of course the basic recipe (simple as it is), but also a technique that will get you professional food stylist looking slices of bacon every time.  Of course adding a glaze makes it even more photo worthy.

First, the technique...

BAKED BACON.  Perfect, reasonably flat every time.  Perfectly crisp and crunchy yet soft and chewy.  You may never make bacon the same way again.... Oh, and it is very very easy!!!

All you need is a baking sheet, parchment paper so clean up is easy and an oven preheated to 375 degrees...

line the baking sheet with a sheet of parchment paper folded on the edges to prevent grease from spreading.

single layer of bacon

bake for 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the bacon and desired crispness.

Drain and allow to cool on a paper towel.

If you glaze (like these), add an additional couple of minutes to the cooking time.

And that's it.  Even those directions make it sound more difficult than it really is.  PERFECT EVERY TIME!

And Best of all... Baking Bacon gives you a chance to "Flavor" the bacon...  Salty, Sweet, Heat, Bacon-y  ... PERFECT!

OK, Here's what I did...

Honey Chipotle Glazed Baked Bacon
