Arrange the bacon in a single layer on a slightly greased metal cooling rack and place it on a parchment or foil lined baking pan (this makes cleanup easier). The bacon can be close together, but don't let it overlap or the bacon will stick together during cooking.
Place the baking sheet of bacon in the oven and cook until the bacon is deep golden-brown and crispy, about 20-30 minutes. Exact baking time will depend on the thickness of the bacon and how crispy you like it.
Remove the bacon from the oven and use tongs to transfer it to a plate lined with paper towels to drain and finish crisping.
Gr8 Do-Ahead Tip:
You can refrigerate leftover bacon for a week or freeze it for up to 3 months; warm the bacon in the microwave before serving.
For a sweeter bacon, sometimes called "Candied Bacon," often used for salads, sprinkle some brown sugar on the bacon before cooking. For skewered bacon, thread the bacon on the skewers before baking.
