  • Hmmm, not sure lol. I've never tried it in the oven, I've always cooked it in a pan on the stove.

  • Try cooking it in a skillet on the stovetop, thats what I do. That way you can watch it the whole time.

  • I cook mine on a stovetop skillet over Medium/High heat. It only takes a few minutes.

  • whe n cooking bacon on the stove it's a good idea to make sure it's totally defrosted and you are cooking it on a medium flame. If it starts spitting grease out of the pan you have the flame too high. When you pick out bacon in the supermarket its a good idea to find packages that don't have a lot of fat showing through the package. It cooks better if you start with a package with less fat. You need to keep an eye on bacon when it's almost done, because it only takes a couple of minutes for it to go from nicely browned bacon to burnt.

  • Keep the heat will cook

  • Cooking it in the oven seems to make it cook down too much, the bacon seems dry and crumbly IMO. Try it on the stove top over mediium heat, turn it as soon as it starts to color a bit. Press it down with a fork so that it will cook evenly and not curl up. Keep turning it and pressing it several times during cooking until it is cooked to your liking. Drain and blot with paper towels.

  • I always use my electric griddle and stay by it when it is almost done. Everytime I tried on the stove top, it burns at the last minute... My friend does it in the oven on the large bar baking stone, but I haven't tried it that way yet.
