I like my bacon really crisp. If you don't, just remove it from the oven when it's done to your liking. So good!
Here's how to bake bacon, aka Gebackener Speck, - the easy way to make lots of bacon without the mess! It's the easiest way I know how to cook bacon, especially without the splatter.
As much as I love bacon, I didn't like the mess it made when I fried. It took longer to clean the stove and surrounding areas than it did to cook it.
That was, until I learned that bacon can be baked in the oven. But even there, it splattered a bit. However, once I started to use a stoneware baking dish, all that changed.
Now, I use a large stoneware cookie sheet. Line the bacon out, close together, without overlapping. Into the oven it goes. 20 minutes later - nice, crispy bacon. AND the oven stays clean. No splattering. No mess.
Stoneware? Some love it and I'm one of them.
I've had my stoneware for years. I handle it carefully and have had no issues with it.
I love that it won't smoke or retain odors from other foods. The food doesn't stick as the special stoneware body draws moisture away from your crusts.
I use it for baking bacon, cookies, meatloaf, almost anything.
After I used my cookie sheet for the first time, I went and purchased 3 loaf pans, a large bar pan, and a pizza stone. The pizza stone is perfect to bake bread on! I've not had one crack or break.

How to Bake Bacon Just like Oma ❤️
1 pound bacon, preferably thick-sliced
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Using stoneware cookie sheet (or foil-lined metal sheet) with edges, lay bacon in non-overlapping rows.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until done. If using thin-sliced bacon, check around 15 minutes.
Remove bacon to paper-towel lined plate to drain fat.
What's even better? I can usually get about a pound of bacon to a cookie sheet - especially if it is thick-cut slices - the best kind for oven baking.
So, you wanted to know how to cook bacon? You bake it. That's
the only way. It's also so convenient because you can use the stove top
to make the eggs or pancakes. In the meantime, the bacon is baking.
Don't have a stoneware cookie sheet? Then use a regular cookie sheet, lined with foil for easy clean up. Still a lot better than frying.
So, that's my secret. Baking bacon. Who would have thought?
So, what's so German about bacon. Well, not only do we enjoy the bacon, but the bacon drippings are saved and used. Add the drippings to kale or when cooking green beans. Use the drippings to brown the meat for Flatladen or for any other meat. Yep, delicious!
I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.
Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.
PS: Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.
PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales ,and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look.
