I love bacon, but always hated cooking it. Using a frying pan always resulted in me getting splashed with hot grease, so it wasn't something I looked forward to making.
I then read about cooking bacon in the oven and decided to give it a try. It's a great way to get the bacon more evenly cooked, and you also can walk away and do other things while it is cooking, since it is in the oven, and not on the stove.
-Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or tin foil
-Place the bacon side by side across the sheet (don't overlap or it won't cook properly)
-Place on middle oven rack at 400 degrees and bake for approximately 25 minutes (if you don't like crispy bacon, check it sooner)
-Remove from baking sheet and drain on paper towels
