What temperature should I use to cook bacon in the oven?

All ovens are a little different, but we recommend 350 degrees. 

How long do I bake bacon?

Making bacon is equal parts art and science. The exact time is up to you - do you prefer your bacon chewy, charred, or somewhere in between? Your best bet is to start checking after 12 minutes, and keep baking up to 20 minutes until the texture is to your liking. 

Should I cook bacon on parchment paper?

No need. Save a step and place your stripes directly on a baking sheet. 

Can you cook bacon in the microwave?

Technically, yes. But we wouldn't recommend it. Around here, we don't believe in taking shortcuts. Those extra few minutes will be worth it for bacon perfection.
