Best Way to Make Flat Crispy Bacon for Sandwiches and Hamburgers
If you’re whipping up a batch of BLT or bacon burgers, you’ll need a hefty helping of bacon. Here’s how to avoid the soft, chewy bacon that comes out on the first bite.
For the flattest and crispest bacon, Serious Eats’ J. Kenji López-Alt recommends baking the bacon on two baking sheets; one at the bottom and one at the top. Line the bottom baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a sheet of parchment paper on top of it. Place the bacon strips on the paper, being careful not to overlap. Add another piece of parchment paper on top of the bacon, then place the second baking sheet on top of it. Now bake at 425 ° F for about 25-30 minutes. Your bacon should be super flat and crunchy and can be placed on a sandwich or burger after a quick pat with a paper towel. This trick is also good if you want to braid the bacon first .
