Many bacon lovers prefer to cook their bacon in the frying pan, cooling on a cooling rack or paper towel. Others get fancy with it by using an air fryer! For extra sweetness, some add maple syrup or even make candied bacon, but many prefer classic bacon, with no extra flavorings taking away from its heavenly taste. No matter how you cook it, bacon is a great low carb option for those watching their carbohydrate intake. It's also keto-friendly and gluten-free. The only things to watch out for when enjoying bacon is its high saturated fat and cholesterol content. However, simply enjoy in moderation and you should be fine!
To make this delicious twisted bacon, start by buying your favorite bacon; thick cut or regular cut should work fine. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper to catch the grease. Then, take each strip of bacon and twist it into a spiral, holding each end. Place your twisted bacon strips onto the sheet. It's recommended to trip the edges to take off the super fatty parts, but it's just as yummy if you leave them on.
Once you've assembled your bacon strips, pop them in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes, then flip them over, and bake for another 20 minutes. Take the bacon twists out and enjoy the best bacon you've ever had!
