This is, by far, the easiest and cleanest way to cook bacon.
1. Lay bacon in a 9x13 dish. DO NOT overlap the pieces of bacon. I usually use two 9x13 dishes, so I can cook the entire pound of bacon at one time.
2. Put both dishes in a cold oven.
3. Set oven at 400 degrees.
4. Set timer for 25-30 minutes.
5. Voila'! The bacon is crispy, and it hasn't shriveled up either. PERFECT BACON!
6. The clean up is a breeze too!
