...and your bacon at home looks more shriveled than George Costanza getting out of the pool?
While some restaurants put a heavy piece of metal on their bacon to keep it straight, others use a tool that you have at home: the oven.
1)Preheat your oven to 400 degrees while laying bacon out on a cooking sheet with parchment paper. I use parchment paper so I don't have to clean up the sheet - yes I'm that lazy.
2)Add as much pepper as you can handle to the bacon
3) Bake for about 15 minutes (everyone has a different oven and cooking times can vary quite a bit)
4)Throw the bacon on a paper towel to help it retain its crispiness
5)Stop looking at it and eat it already!
This method takes more time, but if you have the patience, you'll never cook bacon any other way again!
