To double the batch, use two trays on two oven racks, rotating top to bottom and back to front halfway through cooking. The cooking time may need to be extended by 5 to 8 minutes if you’re cooking two trays. If your oven has a convection setting, use it, reducing the total cooking time by a few minutes.

1) Lining your baking sheet with heavy duty foil means easy clean-up. 2) You can bake two pans worth of bacon at the same time. 3) No oil splattering all over your cooktop. 4) No having to watch the bacon and flipping the pieces so they don’t burn.

How do you cook large quantities of bacon?

Don’t bother with racks, crimped foil, or stacked baking sheets; just lay out your bacon strips on a rimmed baking sheet and bake them in a 425°F oven until they’re as crisp as you like (about 20 minutes was right for me). Drain on paper towels, and you’ve got a big pile of perfectly cooked bacon on your hands.

What kind of Pan do you cook bacon on?

You could use a rimmed sheet pan with a rack ( like this one) if you want to avoid draining your bacon. I personally don’t like to use this type of pan because the wire rack is a pain to clean and I cook bacon too much to be cleaning that wire rack 3 times a week.
