Krazy Kitchen Mom Tips:
  • When making any type of bacon in the oven, use the crunched aluminum foil technique so the bacon grease has ridges to sit in while the bacon is cooking.
  • For this recipe, be sure that the bacon strips fit snuggly on the cookie sheet, touching but not overlapping.
  • The bacon will have pockets of extra crispiness and slightly chewiness when twisted.
