Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time20 mins
- 1 lb bacon about 24 slices
Preheat oven to 425 degrees or if using convection mode preheat to 400 degrees. Place oven racks on lower middle and upper middle positions.
Arrange the bacon in a single layer on two rimmed foil lined baking sheets. Place both baking sheets in oven and bake until crisp and browned, about 18-20 minutes. Make sure and rotate the pans halfway through the baking process.
Remove from oven and transfer bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate. Serve immediately or freeze ahead for later.
Remove foil from baking pans and discard. Place parchment or wax paper on baking sheet.
Arrange bacon in a single layer on baking sheet, add another piece of parchment or wax paper and layer another layer, making sure pieces aren’t touching. Freeze until hard, about 2 hours. This is a critical step, so don’t skip this.
Transfer to gallon sized freezer safe bag and remove one piece out at a time as needed.
