          My in-laws had a tower at their 50th wedding anniversary made out of these. It was the first thing to go.

              No, it caramelizes. Youll never look at regular bacon the same way! LOL

                    This recipe came from a 2001 Rosie magazine............the recipe did not call for cayenne pepper but I added it to mine for an added kick. I also find that the better quality of bacon (like center cut), the better these will turn out. Make sure the bacon is not cut thick or it won't crisp up. If you don't have skewers to twist the bacon on, just twist without them. I most always double this recipe if the kids are here.

                    Brown Sugar Bacon Twists

                    1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
                    1 TBS dry mustard
                    1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
                    1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
                    1/8 tsp cayenne pepper - this is optional as I added it to the original recipe
                    1/2 lb good quality sliced bacon

                    Preheat oven to 350F. Line bottom of a broiler pan with foil and top with broiler pan rack.

                    On waxed paper, place brown sugar, mustard, cinnamon, nutmeg and cayenne on waxed paper and rub together with your fingers until mixture is evenly blended.

                    Press bacon strips into sugar mixture, coating evenly. Twist each bacon strip several times around a wooden skewer. Arrange slices in a single layer on rack of broiler pan but do not overcrowd or they will not crisp properly. Bake 25-30 minutes or until bacon is almost crisp and sugar is bubbly. Let strips cool for 5 minutes before serving. These may be served warm or at room temperature.

                    Makes about 12 pieces.
