Are you tired of cooking bacon on the stovetop and getting grease splatter everywhere? Not to mention that when you’re done, half the bacon is soggy and the other half is burnt!

Try Rach’s easy, hands-off method: bake bacon on a slotted pan!

“When it comes out, it’s evenly brown, perfectly flat and crisp,” Rach says. “Plus all the fat drips away.”

It’s so incredibly simple! Just preheat oven to 375°F, and arrange your bacon on a slotted broiler pan (or a wire cooling rack over a rimmed baking sheet) and bake to crisp for 15 to 18 minutes.
