QUICK TIP- Cooking Bacon Without the Mess

This post contains an affiliate link.

This quick tip for cooking bacon or sausage will save on time and clean up. When most people think about a frying pan for cooking their morning bacon and/or sausage. However, a frying pan leads to  splatter all over your stove top and you'll have to wait longer to cook several batches of bacon since the frying pan is only so big.

I picked up this tip from working in the food service business. On a sheet pan covered with parchment paper, shingle each slice of bacon. The slices can be touching and overlapping if you have a lot to cook. Put the sheet pan in the oven at 400 and cooked to your desired degree of done-ness.

Cleanup is easy. Just drain the fat (saving for later to cook with), toss the parchment paper and wash the pan. Any splatter from the bacon cooking will have happened in the oven and it will burn itself off.
