Did you know that you can cook bacon perfectly in the oven? I love doing it this way. Use your broiler pan and lay out the bacon. Its o.k. if they overlap a bit. Then throw it in a 425 degree oven for about 20 minutes give or take dependent on your desired bacon crispness and viola! The best part....not bacon splatter all over the stove and in the twenty minutes it takes the bacon to cook your pancakes will be ready. I love it. MMMM Bacon!
