Twisted Bacon

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Rita1652

This technique is fun to get the kids involved. This gives the bacon a slightly different texture, crisp yet chewy. For a little added smokiness and heat do try this method with Oven Cooked Bacon With Black Pepper and Brown Sugar. Easy clean up!!!!!! ;)

Wonderful presentation for bacon - looked like little twigs on the plate!! Flavour was really good, although I probably used about 6-8 tsp of brown sugar, & the twisting gave it a chewier, crispier texture. It was very easy to twist the bacon & it stayed that way on the pan.
