  • 1 pack gluten free bacon, we really like Applegate, not thick cut
  • black pepper to taste


  1. Line a baking sheet with tin foil then place a baking rack on top. (I have a rack for cooling cookies that I use for making bacon too.) Arrange the bacon on the rack in an even layer without the bacon slices touching or overlapping. Sprinkle fresh cracked peper over the top according to taste.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°F and immediatly place the pan with the bacon in the oven. Let cook for 15 minutes before checking on the bacon for desired crispness. I usually go about 17-18 minutes because we like it really crispy.
