The Mauro Method insures a crisp cook and easy cleanup with no stovetop splatter. Because you overlap the parchment around the perimeter of the sheet pan, the fat will render and pool around the bacon, just like in a frying pan, and will fry the bacon to a perfect crisp. Because of the parchment barrier, the fat will not come in contact with the metal, creating a mess or burning the fat. Once the fat is cooled on the parchment, just toss it in the garbage! No draining or messy scrubbing!
