TikTok is no stranger to food and cooking hacks, and twisted bacon is the latest to surface.
Twisted bacon has taken over TikTok as a new way to cook and eat yours. It’s exactly as it sounds, bacon but twisted.
@houseofketo appears to be the originator of the trend, introducing the app to it in a video on March 2nd.
The US seems to like crispy bacon while places like the UK prefer it chewy. Bacon twists however apparently mix the best of both. “It’s the perfect combination of crispy and chewy,” states one TikToker who recreated it.
How to make TikTok’s twisted bacon
As instructed by @houseofketo, you first take a piece of bacon and twist in a upwards motion, rather than wrapped around itself.
Then, you place all your roles on a baking paper-lined baking tray. Most TikTokers suggest seasoning the bacon with your preferred seasoning, but bacon lovers can of course leave it with its natural flavour.
Finally, bake them in the oven for 30-40 minutes, but keep checking to make sure it reaches your desired texture.
Some suggest you eat the twists exactly as they are, while others find the shape perfect to just cut up and put in salads, pastas and more.
