Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana recipe for the crock pot. I used a low cal substitute for the heavy cream and hot italian sausage. I think it's better than OG's. Win.
The trick is to put the pan in a cold oven and then switch it on and begin your timer. Im amazed how many people dont know this. Cook bacon in the oven. Cover cookie sheet with tinfoil first. We do 375 for about 20 min instead of 400 for ten because the lower and slower the more fat renders out. I hate getting SPLATTERED!! This works perfect! 8/25/12 - This is the easiest way to cook bacon ever! No more standing over a skillet for me! Clean up was easy!
We always do this at my house!! I'm amazed how many people don't know this. Cook bacon in the oven. Cover cookie sheet with parchment paper first. We do 375 for about 20 min instead of 400 for ten because the lower and slower the more fat renders out. Then all the bacon is done at the same time, meanwhile you were free to make the rest of breakfast. -Martha Stewart **works like a charm, less messy and leaves the stove top open**
