We cook real bacon in the oven at 350 degrees, on non-stick aluminum foil on a cookie sheet with sides. Put it in there for about 20 minutes, but check on it every few minutes. We only do this on the holidays, since my boyfriend and I try and be calorie and fat conscious.

Haven't tried it with turkey bacon.

Yeah, that was the first thing I wondered when I saw this question! Ewwwwwww! Sorry you had such a mess!

Plus, isn't heating up a big oven for bacon a real waste of energy? It's so much faster and easier in the microwave!

I normally use an electric or cast iron skillet.

I almost NEVER cook it in the microwave because it yields a far inferior product, EW!

I'm an oven bacon baker. But I also am a bacon fryer. I am a bacon bi cooker. LOL

To answer the OP: I place the bacon strips on a rack the rack sits in a cookie sheet that is lined with foil. I bake it at 350 for about 20 minutes (depending on how many slices, etc.). I have a self clean oven and don't really have a problem with a mess. Hope this helps.

I have been using the oven for bacon for years with no mess. 350 15-20 minutes single layer on a cookie sheet I pour the grease in my little crock when it is done.

You could try parchment paper on top if you are getting a mess but I honestly never have had a problem. It is a good way to get a bunch of bacon done while you are cooking other things for breakfast.

I tried cooking bacon all ways, but the way I like best is on the George Foreman grill. It stays nice and straight. I cook it for myself, so I cook the whole pound in 2 shifts and freeze it cooked, take it out as I need it.

LOL--in theory this would be easy--in reality, it wasn't easy. I never really found one that could make decent toast, either.

I wouldn't try bacon in a toaster oven b/c there would be so much grease in the little baking pan.

I have a microwave bacon cooker and with that I use paper towels. The bacon meets my standards which may be very low. :0

Ok-So I guess I'm the only one who buys the bacon already cooked! LOL!

When we go camping a special treat is to have REAL bacon in the morning.

I just hate all that grease!

Nope, I buy it too. I always have the precooked bacon in the frig. Actually buy the large package from Costco. I can just take a couple pieces out and warm it and either put it on my salad or just make a sandwich I do find the precooked one not so salty, which is a good thing even if we're talking bacon
