Bacon cooked in a skillet is a real challenge. It curls up and does not cook even.

Cooking bacon in the microwave cooks it more evenly but, to me, it has a strange flavor.

The following method has been the most successful for me.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Line a sheet pan that has at least one-inch sides with tin foil.

Lay the bacon strips flat on the pan close together but not touching.

Place the pan in the oven and cook the bacon to the desired doneness. Do not need to cover bacon.

Remove the pan from the oven. Slightly tilt the pan so the grease will drain but not spill out of the pan.

Move the bacon to the high end of the pan.

After the bacon has drained, lay it on paper towel and blot with more paper towel to soak up the excess grease.

If the bacon is not served right a way, it can be reheated in the microwave for about 20 seconds just before serving. This will not affect the flavor.
