  • 1 lb thick-cut bacon


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Twist each slice of bacon tightly then lay the on the parchment-lined baking sheet, the pieces can be touching.
  • Bake the bacon for 20 minutes, then remove and use tongs to flip the bacon, then bake for an additional 20 minutes.


  • This makes THE BEST bacon! It's the perfect mix of soft and crispy.
  • The twist creates a tunnel in the middle of the bacon that holds onto some of the bacon grease while baking and leads to a super juicy, tender, and flavorful bite.
  • You can bake up to 2lbs at a time on the baking sheet since the pieces can touch without issue.
