Never babysit a skillet of hot, sputtering bacon again — the oven is your friend on Saturday morning. With this method, you can cook a whole package of bacon at once, and you don’t even have to flip it as it cooks. Go on, pour yourself a cup of coffee and let yourself wake up without grease splatters down your robe. This video will show you how.

My other favorite thing about cooking bacon in the oven is how easy cleanup is: Line the baking sheet with aluminum foil and let the bacon grease cool on the foil after cooking is done. Once the grease is solid, lift up the foil and throw it away. If you like to save your bacon grease, just be careful when pouring the hot grease from the baking sheet into the container.
