How Long to Cook Bacon in Oven


Bacon is a classic breakfast food and brunch staple. It adds great flavor to dishes such as baked beans, macaroni and cheese, and even salads. However, you may have wondered if it’s possible to cook bacon in an oven without the mess of splattering grease on the stovetop or having to clean up greasy pans afterward. The answer is yes! You just need some time, patience and know-how before you can safely cook your favorite fatty pork product in the oven without ruining it or filling your entire house with smoke as it cooks. Here are three steps for cooking bacon in an oven:

Step 1

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place the bacon in a single layer on a baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes, then flip it over and bake another 15 minutes (or until crispy).

Step 2

Step 2: Place your bacon in a baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until crispy.

If you want to cook the bacon even more quickly, increase the oven temperature to 375 degrees and cook it for 10-15 minutes. You might need to experiment with different temps and times depending on how long you like your bacon cooked before serving it.

Step 3

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, and line a baking sheet with foil (optional).
  • Place bacon on the prepared baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes or until desired crispiness is achieved.


You can cook bacon in an oven, but you’ll need to experiment with the time and temperature.

Cooking bacon in the oven is a great way to cook it if you don’t have a stovetop or want to use your oven for something else. To do this, place bacon on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

The length of time that it takes for your bacon to be done will depend on how thick it is and what kind of pan you’re using (i.e., glass vs metal). If you have thick cut slices of pork belly, expect them to take longer than thin sliced side pork chops since they require more time over heat before they reach their ideal crispiness level.

Also keep in mind that cooking times vary depending on what type of pan you use as well; metal pans conduct heat better than glass ones so they tend produce quicker results when used with high temperatures such as those required during baking processes like this one!


With a little experimentation, you can cook bacon in the oven. The key is to find the right temperature and time for your particular oven. We hope these tips have helped you on your journey towards deliciousness!
