When I cook bacon, I keep the heat low so it doesn't burn. Many folks like to use the oven, but I want to keep a constant eye on it, so I use a skillet and keep the heat low.
Don't use so much heat
Just stop cooking it before it burns...
Ogden Nash's recipe for cooking perfect toast can also be applied to cooking perfect bacon. He wrote, "cook it till it burns and then twenty seconds less."
I rarely cook bacon but don't have trouble with it burning. Chuck it in a pan (without oil, it'll produce its own fat) medium to low heat, keep turning it so that it doesn't stick to the pan. Mmmm. I can taste it as I type. >:-)
I cook mine in the oven. Usually it takes about 15 minutes but that depends on the thickness of the bacon and how well done you like it.
Don't use too much of heat !! Cook them slowly !! And just have look at them carefully !
