Expert Tips

  • Make your bacon ahead of time to save on prep time. Otherwise, place bacon on foil-lined baking pan, making sure not to overlap pieces. Bake at 400°F 15 to 20 minutes or until brown and crispy. Drain on paper towel, cool slightly before crumbling.
  • Top with chopped tomatoes or sliced green onions for a nice complement to this recipe.
  • Assemble, cover and refrigerate this bake the night before so it’s ready to uncover and pop in the oven in the morning. You may need to add an additional 5 to 10 minutes to bake time.
