What is a good way to cook bacon in an oven?

There are many ways to cook bacon and the best way is by using the oven.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Place a cooling rack over it so that it is elevated above the tray and then place bacon on top of it. Bake for 20 minutes, or until desired crispiness is achieved.

The Benefits of Cooking Bacon-Wrapped Scallops?

The benefits of bacon-wrapped scallops are that they are easy to make, they don’t need any additional ingredients, and they have a salty taste which goes well with the sweetness of the scallop.

Can I use Another Seafood?

This question is a bit tricky, as there are a lot of different types of seafood that can be used for this recipe.
