  2. Use medium heat or lower for a slow, gentle sizzle. Don't rush! Press with spatula frequently to cook fat evenly.
  3. Flip when browned on bottom. Cook, press, flip to desired crispness.
  4. For oven method: Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F). Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Arrange bacon in a single layer; slightly overlapping is fine.
