  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). 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.
  2. 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 prepared baking rack.
  3. Bake until bacon is browned and crisp enough to hold its shape, about 30 minutes.

After cooking this for several years, I have some advice to make it quicker and less messy: 1) Don't worry about twisting the bacon. Cut your packs of bacon in half, shake them in a bag of the ...

I used thick sliced bacon, so 30 minutes didn't get it crispy, but it didn't matter, I thought these were great. Just the right amount of spice with the cayenne. I used a big baggy to mix the ...

We tried this for brunch this weekend and it was a huge hit. My daughter affectionately renamed this "Candy Bacon". Best to cook it on a broiling pan so the drippings can drain off. Next time...

I have been using this recipe since 1989 when I worked for a caterer, it's always a hit. (I do omit the cinnamon). It is a must try if you're looking for something new to bring to a party. We ...

This was outstanding! I made a mistake and put 1/2 tsp. cayenne instead of 1/4 tsp.. I was so worried that it would be too spicy but it wasn't. I did not twist mine. Simply because I overloo...

I've made these several times now, and have tweaked a few things to make it easier for me. I begin by using regular cut bacon, not thick, and I cut the slab in half so I get more appetizers out...

I really want to like these, but I guess candied bacon is just too much for us. Neither bf or I are huge fans, and I don't really taste any of the other spices. All I really taste is the sugar...

Quite tasty. Didn't have mustard in spice form, so I used dijon mustard instead. It made sort of a paste which I crumbled over the bacon and pressed it into the bacon. This worked very well.
