Food Mingle Blog Alternatives and Substitutions:

  • One of the comments for this recipe was to twist the bacon strips before baking them, I tried this, but had to cook them a bit longer to make sure they were crisp enough to hold their shape.  Very nice presentation.
  • You can substitute turkey bacon, but really, it’s not as tasty. Don’t email me about it, you know it’s true.

Yield: 8 slices
