How to Make Perfect Bacon in the Oven

Time Required: 20 minutes
What You Need:
1 lb package of bacon
Oven
Shallow baking sheet
Aluminum foil and paper towels
Directions:
Line a baking sheet with foil. This will make cleanup easier later.

Arrange bacon slices on the foil and place the baking sheet on the center rack of a cold oven. Close oven door. Turn oven on to 400Β°F. Walk away.

Come back 17 to 20 minutes later. As soon as the bacon is golden brown, but not excessively crisp, it’s done. The exact time will depend on the thickness of the bacon slices, and also on how quickly your oven reaches the target temperature.

Remove the pan from the oven. Transfer the bacon to another sheet pan lined with paper towels to absorb the fat. Throw away the aluminum foil once it has cooled.
Tips:
-Don’t pre-heat the oven! Make sure the oven is cold when you put the bacon in.

-Keep your eye on the bacon during the final few minutes of cooking to make sure that it doesn’t burn. Also, remove the cooked bacon from the hot pan right away. The heat from the pan and the hot bacon fat will continue cooking the bacon.

-You can slightly undercook the bacon, then cool it and freeze it in a zipper bag. Then, to reheat, cook two slices in the microwave on medium power for 30 seconds or so.

What’s your face shape? Do you have bangs? Click through to see more details.

Heart Face Shapes:
A heart shape face has a cheek area that is slightly wider than the hairline and finishes with a prominent chin. Heart shaped faces look great with sideswept bangs that vary on the shorter side. This helps draw attention away from the more prominent chin and up to the framed eyes.
Oval Face Shapes:
An oval face shape is typically 3 parts long to 2 parts wide. In other words, the width of your face is about 1/3 less than the length of your face. There are also no major corners on an oval face shape. This shape has a lot more options when it comes to bangs. They look the best a little longer and a little thicker, grazing over the eyebrows. If your hair in thinner, then face framing bangs that can be swept to the side work great too.

Square Face Shapes:
A square face shape is usually proportional in length and width with a strong jaw line, broad forehead, and square chin. For women with a square face shape, longer, eye-grazing bangs work best when they are thin and layered. Anything short and blunt will make the face look too boxy.
Round Face Shapes:
A round face shape is about equal in width and length and doesn’t have pronounced corners. A side-swept look will look great on this face shape. Try keeping the bangs longer on the sides while blending it into your hair helps soften the cheek bones. A blunt bang can work for this shape if they’re a little longer, adding length to the face.

Oh my gosh you guys! I’ve had this totally wrong my whole life. Forever I thought I had a round face shape. Then a little while ago, I was convinced it was square. Now, after doing the research for this post, I’ve realized I’m actually oval. The length of my face is 7″ and the width is 5″. If you have an oval face, the width is about 1/3 less the height. One-third of 7 is 2.333. Seven minus 2.3 is 4.7. Whaaaat?!?

Quite honestly, I think we each know best what looks great on ourselves. Face shape or no. Hopefully this just helps give you some ideas if you’re thinking about trimming some for yourself.
