Bacon Twirls

  • Yield: 4 to 6 servings


  • 1 pound bacon


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place the bacon in an even layer on the sheet and twist each slice from both ends to create a corkscrew effect. Return to the baking sheet and press down on both ends to keep from unraveling.
  • Bake in the oven until brown and crisp, about 12 to 15 minutes, turning as needed halfway through the cooking time.
  • Remove from the oven and drain on paper towels. Serve warm.
