Love crispy bacon? This ‘twisted’ recipe is a must-try

Twisted bacon isn’t so much a recipe as it is a cooking method. The only ingredient you need to make this dish is the bacon of your choice!

The originator of this trend, according to all the TikToks that have followed her lead, is Abby Durlewanger, who goes by the handle @houseofketo.

Unlike traditional bacon fried on the stovetop, twisted bacon gets cooked in the oven. Bacon cooked in the oven cooks more evenly with uniform heat, which prevents burning and curling.

Durlewanger recommends cooking at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes and curling the bacon strips tighter if you prefer crispy bacon. Looser twists make it a bit chewier.

If you want to cook up the perfect bacon for a big breakfast and make sure you have leftovers, then twisted bacon might be the best prep method. In the oven, you can cook up to two pounds of bacon if you have a baking pan that’s large enough.
