I prefer to cook bacon in the oven vs. on the stove top in a skillet or frying pan. Cooking stove-top always ends up covering my stove in grease spatters (and sometimes the spatters hit my hands — that doesn’t exactly feel good!). I also think it’s tedious and slow. It makes so much less mess to cook bacon in the oven than on the stove top. Depending on the size of baking pan you use you can usually cook the whole package at once instead of just a few pieces at a time. Also, instead of cooking your bacon in a pan full of grease, the grease drips away from the bacon as you cook when you use the method that I’m going to explain here.
