It’s honestly super simple. Take a single piece of bacon and twist it in an upwards motion so it resembles a straight line (not wrapped around itself like a piece of sushi). Then, take your pieces of bacon and line them up side-by-side on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Pop them in the oven for around 20 minutes at 350°. Then, when the timer goes off, flip the twists and bake for another 20 minutes …and voila! You’ll have perfect twists of bacon that are great for breakfast, to-go snacks or even a delicious avocado BLT.

Find the best bacon in your state to make your twists even more incredible.

How to Make Twisted Bacon Even BETTER

Bacon is already ridiculously great on its own, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be even better! Sprinkle your bacon with some cayenne pepper if you like a little kick, or brown sugar and maple syrup for sweetness. Don’t forget the apple juice and mustard for a bit of that bacon glaze! However you like your bacon, we hope this method puts a new twist on your morning.
