    I'm not sure if this is a joke or for real--but it sure is the truth :)

    Lots of people these days think microwave. My stepmom has that shelf stable "bacon" that you're supposed to put in the microwave. I told her she wasn't allowed to EVER call that stuff bacon.

    I have to admit I've tried the chicken "bacon" version since my meat allergy and its tolerable on a sandwich....but bacon it aint!

    I never know what to say to people when they tell me I should try cooking bacon in the oven on a cookie tin.

    Now I do! :dblthumb:

    We’re mainly seafood, but do supply cold chain packaging to several provision companies and a lot of bio-pharmaceutical companies, worldwide.

    My wife saw something on the Internet about baking bacon in the oven and had to try it out.
    Not bad, I said as I started sampling it. She mentioned something about the pound of bacon was supposed to be for both of us.:4:

    I like that a lot.
    There's one I saw a while back about how to cook steak which essentially says, "Sometimes I just want to slap you!"

    this could turn into a real political diss-cussin!

    and quick!

    our elected officials are doing everything they can as fast as they can to eliminate courses that actually teach the students to feed themselves manage their personal finances and to actually get a job(with the training provided by public education)

    hushup old man b4 this turns ugly

    yes sir

    My son in law discovered cooking bacon in the oven on a cookie sheet. I have to admit it made some really tasty bacon. He did that every morning during our last elk season in our cabin oven. It was great having him get up early every morning and have that crispy bacon ready. Nobody got hurt until upper management visited the cabin after the season and saw the condition of her oven. I couldn't understand all of the words she was using because she had her head in the oven scrubbing the artifacts of that crispy bacon. I was just thankful I wasn't responsible for the cookie sheet bacon, it was ugly enough.
    So cooking bacon on a cookie sheet in the over can produce some great tasty crispy bacon, but it can have serious consequences depending on the standards of your individual upper management.

    If you have a traeger or similar style of grill, that's a great way to cook bacon while avoiding kitchen messes.

    I don't cook bacon inside any more. Traeger or over a fire.

    So long as the oven is at about 350 and you're cooking with parchment paper under the bacon, I haven't noticed any mess at all in the oven. It's perfectly done in about 20 minutes and even and still flat. Just my experience. YMMV.

    If you've been eating bacon at restaurants the odds are pretty good you've been eating oven cooked without knowing.

    Here is how I cook bacon.
    Cookie sheet with aluminum foil on it. Then wire cake cooling rack. 2 for a full size cookie sheet. Then bacon on the racks. Keeps it up out of the grease so it doesn't splatter all over the oven. Flip it over about 15 minutes into cooking. 350 deg. Can make it crispy or softer. Doesn't burn.
    Excuse me, have to go to the kitchen now....:D

    Family Studies and Shop are both optional high school credits here, but non-existent in our local elementary schools. (I'm speaking strictly of my neighbourhood. Not sure about elsewhere.) They were both on the curriculum when I went to school and I believe they should be again.

    I prefer my bacon fairly evenly cooked, except the fat on the ends. But every time I see @CivilizationDropout on ig he has bacon hanging over the fire on a stick and I'm thinking I want some of that.

    I think I meant @NWPrimate sorry.

    Bacon is best baked.
    Bacon is best fried.
    Bacon is best grilled.
    Bacon is best cooked.

    I've been guilty from time to time but the top left monkey man is habitual...
