Arrange bacon in a single layer on a wire rack coated with cooking spray; place in an aluminum foil-lined jelly-roll pan. Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until crisp.

Ratings & Reviews

Takes bacon up a notch!

December 24, 2016
I'm not sure why this recipe had only two stars. I've made it several times for guests, who always rave. If you are a bacon purist, perhaps this isn't for you, but I love a twist on the traditional.
