How Long Does Bacon Take to Cook in the Oven

Oven-Baked Bacon (3 Servings)


  • Six bacon slices, thick-cut
  • Pepper (optional)


  1. Set the oven to heat to 400F, and during the time, prepare a baking pan by lining it with foil. Put an oven-proof rack on the lined pan and coat lightly with cooking spray.
  2. Sort the bacon strips on the rack to be properly spaced, and sprinkle the top with pepper. Flip the slices and sprinkle the back with more pepper (skip this step if you prefer your bacon plain).
  3. Place the bacon strips in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, checking for the right crisp at the 15-minute mark. You want the bacon strips to reach a golden brown with crispy edges and no burns.
  4. When the strips are ready, take the tray out and transfer the bacon to a paper-lined plate. Let them soak for a bit, so the paper towels mop up the extra grease. Then, serve as desired.
