The flavor on these was good, but they never got crisp, even after 25 minutes in the oven. They were just floppy and sticky and greasy. Next time I will make them on a broiler pan and see if that helps. Maybe it was the brand of bacon, I got it from Costco.

This just wasn't a hit. Seemed like too much seasoning for the bacon.

Easy fast and delicious! I made them as part of a "breakfast for dinner" menu for a dinner group, and everyone gobbled them up!

I'm a bacon lover and really enjoyed these bacon twists. They disappeared as fast as I could make them.
