    Set the oven to 400. The trick, though, is to put the bacon in when the oven is cold. Otherwise it will burn. I leave it in for about 10-15 minutes depending on crispness preferred. Works like a charm every time!

    I always cook my bacon on stove top. It makes a huge mess though b/c the grease flies everywhere, but I've found that it gives me the crispiness that I like. I cook it on medium, maybe a little lower if it starts to pop a lot. All of the fat liquifying usually ends up kind of deep frying the bacon in the pan to give it a really nice crisp.

    Goal: Short term, get below 200 and get pregnant. Long term, get to 120-130
    Mini goal, get in to a size 12.

    I bought a pan spatter cover for just that reason. Not perfect but a lot better.
    Started Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, and 5' 1", reached goal weight in 5 months.
    Lowest weight 93lbs - too thin. Now stable at around 100lbs much better weight for me at my age.
    Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.

    After this thread I re-tried the oven method from cold. I agree it is great, but I find the bacon goes to nothing...... I can eat a whole tray full, like 10 rashers LOL where panfried I only have 3 usually.

    Yeah, we really need to invest in one of those

    And I agree... oven cooking bacon is ok, but I found that the fat on it melts instead of getting crispy so you're left with less.
