Bacon Wednesday: So nice we’ve eaten it twice
By far, the most popular Bacon Wednesday item consumed at CRC World Headquarters has been the Spiced Bacon Twists, originally served at the Tuck U Inn at Glick Mansion in Atchison, Kansas. So for this Bacon Wednesday, we made them again.
Spiced Bacon Twists
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon dry mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 pound sliced bacon
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set a wire rack over the foil. Use a baking sheet that has sides to catch the grease.
In a small bowl stir together the brown sugar, mustard powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and cayenne pepper. Press each slice of bacon into the mixture until coated. Twist each strip a few times and place on the baking rack.
Bake until bacon is browned and crisp enough to hold its shape, about 30-40 minutes.
