Bacon 2.0 - Bacon that is..... Well, Better than Bacon

Another idea that I came across and WOW...  you can improve bacon.  Who knew??  Lightly sweet, a touch smokey with a bit of bite.

I usually cook my bacon in the oven anyway.  It's carefree and easy to clean.  When I saw this I just had to give it a try.

Place bacon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprinkle lightly with chipotle powder and the sprinkle with brown sugar.  You can adjust to your tastes..


Now...  grab the ends of a piece of bacon and twist in opposite directions until it is rolled like in the image below.  Thinner strips work the best for this and the flavour gets trapped in the bacon tube.


Bake at 400F until desired crispness.  If the bacon is not crispy it will not hold the tube shape.

Sizzle...  can you hear it? can you smell the bacon?

And serve....  So good.
