This recipe is from Bill's Open Kitchen by Bill Granger. Some of my favorite brunch memories are from his Darlinghurst cafe and I haven't eaten there in over 10 years.
Bacon is simply delicious. Bill's technique is easy and most of the fat drips out during cooking to insure that nice crispy finish.
Preheat oven to 400. Roll each slice of bacon around two fingertips to create a floret. Stand each on a baking sheet. If your bacon keeps unfurling, just skewer each with a toothpick to keep roll in place. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cooking time will vary, depending on thickness of bacon slices. Personal preference should come into play as well- keep on cooking until it is just the way you like it. Easy and good!
