Spiced bacon twists

Betsy, Catherine and Kim do love Bacon Wednesday

It is Bacon Wednesday and we have hit the friggin’ jackpot this week. Spiced bacon twists. They are better than pig candy. We ate a whole container full. All of them. I am going home and making some more for tomorrow, even though Thursday is not an officially sanctioned bacon day at CRC World Headquarters.

This recipe comes from the Tuck U Inn at Glick Mansion in Atchison, Kansas, via allrecipes.com. Here’s the link. By the way, the original recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of dry mustard, which I think is a misprint. Use 2 teaspoons instead.

Spiced Bacon Twists

1 cup packed light brown sugar

2 teaspoons 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.
