Top 3 keto tricks for cooking bacon

We finally decided to take matters into our own hands and figure out for ourselves what the best way to cook bacon truly is. but we covered all of the most common preparation methods. Let’s see if we can get to the bottom of the age old question. what the Top tricks for cooking bacon?.

01)- The first way to cook bacon


  • 8 – 10 Bacon Slices
  • Nonstick Cooking Spray {optional}


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper, or aluminum foil. Optional: If using foil, you can spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray if desired.
  3. Place bacon slices on baking sheet, then place sheet on middle rack of oven.
  4. Bake for 15 – 25 minutes, or until done. {time can be altered depending on how crispy you like your bacon and how thick your slices are}
  5. Keep an eye on your bacon… do NOT overcook!
  6. When it’s done to your crispy likings, remove from the oven, and transfer bacon to a paper towel lined plate, to drain off excess grease. You can use paper towels on top to pat off extra grease as well.

02)- The second way to cook bacon

This simple trick is such a game changer!
In order to help someone, I wanted to offer my bacon frying setup, which is more of a technique than a recipe. I hang the bacon over barbecue skewers over a prepared baking pan using a set of old file cabinet rails. With more bacon fried at once, I find that it cooks crispier and more uniformly. It weighs around 1.5 pounds of thick-cut bacon. Whereas I can often only fit approximately 10 slices on a horizontal pan, I can fit up to 30 slices at once. Usually, I cook at 375°F for 18 to 20 minutes, then check. Because there will be a lot of bacon grease on the tray, remove with caution. Skewer oiling can help with stickiness but is not necessary.

ETA: 375 for 20 yields very crispy bacon for us, which we prefer. Cooked bacon softens a little bit when kept in the refrigerator. If you prefer it chewy, check it after 15 minutes or lower the temperature to 350. From there, you may easily raise it to your preferences.
The barbecue skewers are made for contact with hot food. The uncoated aluminum rack is not in contact with the food and is not coated.

03)- The third way to cook bacon

Bacon and Brussel sprouts are my go-to keto food pairing. Salt, pepper, parmesan cheese, and olive oil are added to the brussel sprouts. Grease from the bacon falls through the top rack. 390 degrees for 35 minutes. Yum!
