What is Twisted Bacon?

With this viral TikTok trend it’s so easy to make twisted bacon.  You’ll be thanking the internet for creating the app that thought up your new favorite way to make bacon.  With this recipe and method, you get incredibly juicy and flavorful bacon every single time!

Serve this bacon at breakfast for your family, hanging off your Bloody Mary at brunch with friends, to make the perfect BLT or just as a stand-alone snack!  No matter how you serve this bacon, you’ll look forward to biting into a slice of this savory, crisp twisted bacon.  

We love twisted bacon because it’s so easy to make.  You simply twist and bake your bacon!  There is next to no cleanup since you cook the bacon in your oven, you skip the grease splatter mess that comes with frying it in a pan.  Simply roll up your foil and/or parchment paper after it’s cooled and toss away the mess.  This hands off recipe means the only work is twisting and placing it on the sheet, you flip it once halfway through but otherwise no more babysitting bacon. Twisting the bacon creates a tunnel that locks in some of the bacon grease, leading to a super juicy and tender bite of bacon.
