This recipe comes courtesy of my friend Jeff, who likes good food. Here's a very slightly edited version of his recipe as received via email:
My preferred bacon technique:
-line a cookie sheet or roasting pan with foil
-lay the bacon in it
-put it in cold oven
-turn oven to 400F
-come back in 20 minutes - Bacon!
- remove bacon and put it on paper towels to absorb fat or it will keep cooking on hot sheet.
- If your oven runs hot or the bacon is thin, it may need only 15. Better check at 15 the first time you try in a particular oven.
- If you make multiple batches (and baby, you know you wanna) then you'll need to check much sooner on every one after the first, as the oven will already be hot.
