Twisted Bacon Recipes

Before you whip up your next pan of delicious twisted bacon in the oven, keep in mind that you have a plethora of toppings from which to choose. Everyone has their favorites, ranging from garlic powder to brown sugar, or even chocolate and sea salt! Start with a topping you know you’ll like. Because when it comes to making twisted bacon in the oven, there are no limits to the condiments, herbs, and spices you can add to make twisted bacon your way. The sky is the limit!

The only ingredient you need to make Twisted Bacon is a package of regular sliced bacon! We like our bacon thick-sliced because it twists up nicely. Although, any brand of bacon will taste even more delicious when you twist it up and cook it in the oven. You probably have some bacon in the line-up for a big Sunday breakfast, so why not use what you already have on hand?

It is best to begin by reading our instructions about cooking twisted bacon in the oven if you have never made it this way. Start by preheating your oven to 370°F and then adjust it down as necessary because the ingredients you choose will affect your oven temperature setting. For example, you may want to reduce the temperature for any variation that involves sugar, maple syrup, or honey because they tend to burn quickly.
