Toaster Oven Bacon

Similar to cooking bacon in a convection oven or air fryer, we love to make bacon in our toaster oven, especially because it keeps all the grease, fat, and oils in one place, making clean-up easier and faster!

The trick to cooking bacon in your toaster oven is to cook it slowly, this is why the recipe calls for an 8 minute setting. Unlike the stove top, using the toaster oven allows you to control the length of the cooking time better. The slower the bacon cooks, the crispier it turns out. Another trick to make sure it’s crispy, but not dry, is to splash a little bit of water on it prior to cooking. We enjoy our bacon for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. For breakfast, we put it in an egg sandwich, for lunch, we cut up bits to mix in with salad, and with dinner, we also use bits to cook with green beans. We love the versatility of bacon and the flavor it adds to our dishes!
