Hey Jules, when I made this, I only used 9 thin slices of bacon, and placed the bacon on a parchment lined 17-1/2" x 11-1/2" x 3/4" baking sheet, and baked it in a 325 degree oven for exactly 17 minutes, but next time I will bake it for 16 minutes and 30 seconds, as my oven gets quite hot. I didn't use all the sugar spice mixture, (just 3/4's of it) nor did I use the bamboo skewers to twist the bacon, but rather just applied the sugar spice mixture to one side of the bacon. By the way, I thought there was enough of the sugar spice mixture to coat 13 slices of thin sliced bacon. Jules, this was very good, and I also enjoyed it by adding 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper to the sugar/spice mix. Thank you Jules for sharing this recipe with fellow Zaar members. What a great treat this makes for breakfast or for lunch. Mmm, yum-o!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F; soak 12 bamboo skewers in warm water (so they won't burn in oven).
  2. Line the bottom of broiler a pan with foil for ease of cleaning, then top with broiler-pan rack.
  3. Mix together brown sugar (or heat-stable sugar substitute, for diabetics and lowcarbers), mustard powder, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  4. Pour onto waxed paper and lightly shake paper to spread mixture evenly.
  5. One strip at a time, press the bacon into the sugar mixture to coat.
  6. Twist each piece of coated bacon into a bamboo skewer and place on broiler-pan rack.
  7. Bake 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees F, until almost crisp and sugar coating is bubbly.
  8. Let strips cool 5 minutes before serving.
