Preheat the oven to 375°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with heavy duty aluminum foil.
Separate the slices of bacon and lay them on the sheet. Try to avoid overlapping if you can.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, turning the slices over about midway through cooking time. Use cooking tongs so you don't burn yourself.
As oven temperatures and thickness of bacon can fluctuate, check often to prevent burning. Don't burn the bacon!
