What is the Best Bacon to Use?

This recipe works best if you do not use thick-cut bacon. You want the bacon to get crispy and there is too much fat on thick cut. 

I like to use original bacon or hardwood smoked bacon. You can use center cut bacon, but you may need to cook for less time.

How to Make Bacon Twists

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Remove the bacon from the package.

Twist bacon on a cutting board. If the baking sheet is small, cut off the ends of the bacon on each side, about an inch.

Place the bacon twists on the baking sheet in a row.
