  • One packet of Turkey Bacon
  • One cookie sheet or a baking sheet
  • Aluminium Foil or parchment paper


  • Before you start with your cooking, preheat the oven to 400°F (204°C). Then fold a sheet of aluminium foil.
  • Tear off the sheet of foil that's 2 inches (5.1 cm) to 3 inches (7.6 cm) longer than the baking sheet that you are using
  • Keep folding the back and forth like an accordion (fan-shaped). Make proper ridges in your foil that are 1 inch (2.5 cm) tall
  • Foil ridge helps the bacon to be cooked properly and give it natural crisp. If you need flat bacon, you can lay a sheet of foil on a baking sheet.
  • Arrange the turkey bacon across the foil ridges. You have to place the ridged foil on the baking sheet and lay as many turkey bacons pieces across the foil
  • Do not overlap the bacon strips, or else your bacon won't crisp up
  • Bake your turkey bacon for about 7 to 8 minutes only
  • Put the baking sheet inside the preheated oven, then bake your turkey until the bacon turns golden or brown and crispy
  • As soon as the turkey bacon's sides look dry and crunchy, you can flip the slices of bacon
  • After flipping the strips, bake the other side of the slices for 7 to 8 minutes more
  • Using ridged foil is a good way to avoid flipping the slices as it makes the presence of the ridged shape possible all by itself. But tongs can be used to flip the turkey if you are using a flat sheet of aluminium
  • Cook your turkey bacon for 7 to 8 minutes more so it can become absolutely crispy.
  • Please take out your bacon from the oven and serve it.
    Do use oven gloves to take the pan out of the oven to keep your hands safe.
