Spiced Bacon Twists

Spiced Bacon Twists

1 C. light brown sugar

2 T. dry mustard

1/2 t. ground cinnamon

1/2 t. ground nutmeg

1/4 t. cayenne pepper

1 lb. sliced bacon

Arrange oven racks in middle and bottom positions. Preheat oven to 350°F. To make clean-up easy, line bottom of a broiler pan with foil.

Place a sheet of waxed paper on shallow tray or counter. Place brown sugar, mustard, cinnamon, nutmeg and cayenne on waxed paper and rub together with your fingers until mixture is evenly blended.

Dip bacon strips into sugar mixture, coating evenly. Twist each bacon strip several times. Arrange about half the slices in a single layer on rack of broiler pan. Bake 30 minutes or until bacon is almost crisp and sugar is bubbly. Carefully place hot bacon strips on a piece of clean aluminum foil to cool slightly before serving. Repeat with remaining bacon slices and sugar mixture. These may be served warm or a room temperature.

Makes about 24 pieces.
