What to make this weekend: crispy yet chewy thick-cut bacon in the oven
Bacon is the star of any meal it’s invited to – whether it’s the ultimate B.L.T. or brunch with mimosas. And you want your bacon cooked to perfection.
Let me introduce you to Hormel Black Label Applewood Smoked Thick Cut Bacon. Pick it up at Target or Publix. It’s delicious, but the key here is it’s thick-cut bacon. Whether you go to a butcher or get enough for a brunch party at Costco, thick-cut bacon will deliver the perfect combination of crispy on the outside and chewy once you take a bite.
Bake your bacon on a lined cookie tray at 400 degrees for about 25 – 30 minutes. Eyeball it. When it looks like it’s almost done, you’re ready to make your move. Take it out just before it is the done-ness you like, let it cool on the plate, and it will crisp a little more.
