'A friend gave me this recipe to use at a bridal shower brunch, and the sweet chewy bacon strips were a big hit,' recalls Jane Paschke from Duluth, Minnesota. Lining the pan with foil before baking helps cut down on cleanup.

Uh, YUM. We loved it. I used a nice thick peppered bacon. NO leftovers (but really, is there EVER any leftovers when it comes to bacon?). Read More

OMG! As if bacon weren't addicting enough already! These were out of this world good. I omitted the cinnamon & put the sugar in a big baggie w/ the bacon. I was able to really coat the bacon that way. I cooked them on a wire rack, over my foil lined pan & I set them on a sheet of parchment paper after baking. This takes bacon to a whole new level...thanks Jane Paschke! Read More

Delicious. I used a broiler pan, lined the bottom with foil & all the fat drained off & clean up was a snap! Will definitely make again. Read More

So simple and so good! I'm embarrassed to say that DH and I ate the entire pan in one sitting. Read More

Don't let the bacon grease catch your over on fire-make sure you use a pan with deep enough sides to catch the grease. Read More

Dang! This was a really tasty and quick way to make bacon! I used turkey bacon and didn't use any cinnamon, and it turned out great! Quite sticky though, and a little messy for cleanup, but definitly worth it! Read More

There's no possible way "bad" and "bacon" can be placed in the same sentence. This is salty and sweet. I like my bacon crispy but the rest of the family likes it limp, so I baked for the 20 minutes. Probably would've been a five star for me if it were crisp. (Added an extra tsp of Cinnamon) Read More

These certainly TASTED delicious!! However, getting the twists to actually stay twisted was more challenging than it ought to be... I wonder if this had something to do with me using thick-cut bacon? Either way, it was fun. We ended up using them for two things at a bacon-themed dinner party: stir-sticks for a bacon cocktail, and as a creative element for our dessert shooters (maple-bacon-chocolate mousse). So fun!

Positively addictive! I baked at 400 F for 12 minutes since that's what my bacon package said. Turned out great! I cut down the recipe to 4 slices and wished I would have made more! Read More
