The old saying that all things are better with bacon is true. Sweet or savory, recipes with bacon are more exciting. Typically bacon is cooked on the stove which can get tedious (and messy). This recipe is a simpler way to cook bacon in the oven. Not only does it create extra time and stovetop space to work on the rest of the meal, but it also fills the kitchen with the irresistible smell of bacon. When the baked bacon comes out of the oven all crispy and perfect, it's magic.
