Notes

Leftover bacon can be refrigerated for a week or can be frozen for up to 3 months. Warm the bacon in the microwave before serving.
For even crispier bacon, put a metal cooling rack over the foil-lined baking pan and lay the uncooked bacon over the cooling rack. This will allow the bacon to cook from all sides and become extra crispy.
