Fully cooked bacon is ready to eat after easy prepping and some baking time. After making a batch of these bacon strips you can store, freeze or use up afterwards. This method can be a tremendous time savor for future meals that consist of bacon in them. 

It’s done by placing all these fatty strips onto a baking pan and allowing the oven to do the cooking. Now, if you’re planning to freeze or store the bacon afterwards then slightly undercook the bacon by a few minutes to allow them to further cook during the heating up time.

Anywhere from about 20-25 minutes is a good time frame to go by for that “undercooked” but almost done stage. To make them fit in one pan overlap the bacon only do separate the strips right after baking otherwise they can stick. Clean up is easy and you can have ready on hand bacon. Try this method the next time you make bacon.
