Bacon Without the Mess!

Burnt Macaroni breakfast 088aWho doesn’t love bacon!  It’s the focus of any breakfast or brunch!  But what I always hate about making bacon is the greasy mess it leaves behind.  But here’s a way to make bacon without the mess and the best part is it tastes just as good.

Burnt Macaroni breakfast 019abYou first need to start with really good bacon.  Make sure it has more meat than fat (unless you like it a little bit fattier).  I actually like the fat!

  1. In my experience, paper towels some times catch fire in the oven 😉 you didn’t have that problem?

    1. No luckily I didnt:). You want to make sure you put it on the middle rack of the oven and never put it too close to the top.
