Make your own bacon bits that taste MUCH better than those flavorless packages from the store. They only take 15 minutes to make, and store wonderfully in the freezer. Great as toppings for pizza, baked potatoes, and more!
When serving breakfast and preparing bacon for overnight guests or a large family, I use a large shallow pan or cookie sheet with sides. Set a wire cake rack inside or line with foil, and punch a few holes in foil to let grease drain into pan. Place strips on top. Bake at 375° for 15 to 20 minutes*.

oven-crisped bacon: Arrange strips of bacon on a rack set in a rimmed baking sheet. Roast the bacon gently and evenly in the oven at 375 degrees, rotating pan halfway through cooking, for about 15 minutes. This will ensure that there are no chewy pockets or overly-burnt bits.
