Why You’ll Love this Bacon

When the weekend is here, I don’t know about you, but I want some delicious Crispy Oven Bacon for breakfast!

I could  pretty much eat bacon for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between. But my pants probably wouldn’t agree with me.

But, who really cares what our pants think of us?

I have discovered an awesome way to cook bacon, that is stress-free and almost mess-free!  

Bacon fresh from the oven

A long time ago, I used to cook bacon in a frying pan on the stove.  

It worked, but you had to stand there constantly and bacon grease would fly everywhere. 

Then came the invention of the George Foreman Grill.  

This life changing appliance made cooking bacon a breeze, but I have to admit that cleaning the grill was kind of a pain.

So I searched the internet and low and behold, I found out that you can cook bacon in the oven. 

It is really quite easy, there is no bacon grease splatter, and clean up is simple and easy.  

Because the bacon is in the oven, you don’t need to stand over it while it cooks, freeing up your time to do other things like Oven Toast, The Best Scrambled Eggs, Perfect French Toast, Sweet Cream Pancakes, or Crispy Waffles.

The possibilities are endless!

Yummy! I love bacon! Part of the reason I chose the paleo diet was because I can still have bacon. Haha.
