2. In a cold cast iron skillet (or other oven safe skillet) place the slice of bacon. Place the pan in a cold oven and turn the temperature up to 325 degrees. Cook the bacon 12 - 15 minutes or until desired degree of crispiness.*
3. Remove cooked bacon from the pan and place on a paper towel to drain. Pour out excess bacon grease, leaving enough to coat the pan. Place the skillet back into the oven and increase the heat to 400 degrees.
