- One package of Hempler’s bacon
- Preheat your oven: Start by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C).
- Prepare the baking sheet: Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. This will help catch the grease and make cleanup easier.
- Lay out the bacon: Arrange the bacon strips in a single layer on the baking sheet. Make sure the bacon strips aren’t overlapping, as this will lead to uneven cooking.
- Bake the bacon: Put the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake the bacon for 15-20 minutes. The exact cooking time can vary depending on how crispy you like your bacon and the thickness of the slices, so it’s a good idea to start checking after about 12 minutes.
- Drain the bacon: When the bacon is done to your liking, remove the baking sheet from the oven. Use tongs to transfer the bacon strips to a plate lined with paper towels. This will absorb the excess grease.
- Serve and enjoy: Your Hempler’s bacon is now perfectly cooked and ready to enjoy!
PRO TIP: Remember, bacon can continue cooking a little even after you take it out of the oven, so you might want to remove it when it’s a touch less crispy than you’d like. It will also get crisper as it cools.
