22 Bacon-tastic Recipes

It goes without saying: Everyone loves bacon. And we’re here to help you nurture that love with some incredible recipes from Rach.

First of all, it’s important to get your bacon absolutely perfect for any of these dishes. Rachael’s foolproof method is to make it in the oven, instead of on the stovetop or in the microwave.

Here’s how to do it: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Farenheit, place your bacon on a slotted broiler pan (if you don’t have one, check out Rachael’s recommendation to make your own), and bake until it’s crisp – about 15-18 minutes. Not only will your bacon be amazing every time, but your cleanup is faster and simpler.

Now, let’s get to these 22 fantastically bacon-y recipes!
