Oven Bacon

I’ve mentioned before that we were going on a quick road trip in mid July.  The Imaginative One had a camp in Kent, Ohio.  Then he was going to go to another camp in Michigan.  Hubby and I decided to drive him from one camp to the other camp.

After dropping him off at his second camp, Hubby and I went to a town in Michigan called Holland.  Even though we were there for less than 24 hours, I fell in love with that place.  The architecture in the town was unbelievable.  Since it is situated on Lake Michigan and Lake Macatawa, we were able to see a beautiful sunset.


We also love the statues that were located all around the town.  We only got to see 4 of the 16 statues.  I wish we were able to see all of them.


Holland is also known for having the only authentic working windmill in the United States.  We got to talk with the miller at the windmill which was totally awesome.


If you want to visit an unique place, Holland is one of those places.

The Recipe

We love bacon around here.  I admit I usually cook the bacon in the microwave.  This is an easier way to bulk cook bacon so you can freeze bacon slices for later.

My favorite grocery store, Fresh Thyme, has great bulk thick cut bacon that I personally use for this recipe.

Once the grease from the bacon has cooled, place in a container to use later for fried potatoes or some other dish.

To remove any grease that is left on the cookie sheet, I use Dawn.  I pour Dawn on the cookie sheet and then I let it sit for a while before rinsing it off.  So easy.
