I bake my bacon or turkey bacon as much as possible. I’m pretty confident everyone has that one food they dread making, and mine is frying bacon!!

We don’t use regular bacon regularly; I am more of a turkey bacon fan. I use real bacon mostly as a recipe ingredient, such as in clam chowder, layered salad, and Zuppa Toscana soup. I also occasionally like turkey bacon on a deli sandwich or a breakfast sandwich with an egg.

The photo I am showing in this post is turkey bacon. It bakes up crispy and quickly without any mess. I line my baking sheet with foil; or use parchment paper if you prefer. You don’t even have to flip the bacon while it’s in the oven!

Cooked bacon is also freezer friendly, which I love. I only have to cook it once and pull some out when I’m in the mood.
