It might seem like a long time, but cooking the bacon until it’s well-done means it’ll stay crisp at the table.
INGREDIENTS (8 SERVINGS)
- 2 pounds thick-cut bacon (about 16 slices)
- 2 tablespoons cracked pink peppercorns
- 1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
Place racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 400°. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with foil and fit with wire racks. Place bacon on racks and sprinkle with half of pink and black pepper. Bake 15 minutes, turn, sprinkle with remaining pink and black pepper, and rotate baking sheets. Bake bacon until brown and crisp, 15–20 minutes longer.
