    This is for cooking bulk bacon (1lb to 5lbs depending on your oven).

    Slap 1lb or more of bacon on a tinfoil wrapped cookie sheet (With a lip to help keep fat from dripping off of it).

    Turn oven up to 400°F (Do not preheat) and slide cookie sheets onto middle rack).

    Cook for ~20 minutes (If you have sheets on the bottom rack, cook a minute or two longer after removing the sheets on the middle rack).

    Enjoy the bacony goodness.

    I always grill bacon, too much grease if I fry it.

    I am not a fan of greasy bacon either and prefer it to have some crispness to it.

    I usually dry fry it for a few minutes until it's just cooked.

    I don't mind crispy bacon but frankly I can't wait for it to get crispy.

    The only time I think I prefer greasy bacon if I'm using it to slap a few faces into place and/or looking good.

    If you use a proper jelly roll pan and not a cookie sheet (most people think they are the same thing), you don't have to worry about adding the lip to the foil as the jelly roll pan has sides to it.

    I use Jelly roll pans, but most people don't have them, so I just put cookie sheets.

    Actually the jelly roll, also known as the Swiss Roll is not of our making. Altho we did rename the Swiss Roll to the Jelly Roll (since the filling is jelly or jam) and the pan, in Europe at the time, was called the sheet pan.

    Well, a sheet pan can have sides or not have sides...calling them a jelly roll pan or a cookie sheet makes sense... :D
