Magic Bacon

A Sunday brunch fry up is nothing without bacon. The splattering of bacon over the hob doesn’t fill me with joy, though.

Bacon, after all, is really just thin strips of gammon so I devised this method of cooking bacon in the oven.


  • One packet of bacon
  • Cinnamon to sprinkle
  • Honey to taste


  • Place a flat roasting pan (Spray and Cook or oil first) in the oven and heat to 180 centigrade
  • Take the pan out and lay the individual strips of bacon in the pan
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon and honey to taste
  • Place back in oven and cook to desired taste.

    To avoid the mess I cook my bacon in the microwave 2 mins for 3 pieces on a paper plate, place another paper plate on top inverted. The bacon is always crispy.
    Thanks for interesting honey and cinnamon options.

    Forgot to say that anyone (like a restaurant or caterer) that shares their recipe/s (CLICK HERE) will have their recipe look just like the above with a link to their web site – a nice way of promoting your business by sharing.

      I believe that they use a different horned animal for their bacon, though. :-)
