Meet the latest obsession sweeping through foodie feeds everywhere: Billionaire Bacon Twists. This isn’t your average breakfast side. It’s bacon elevated to a level of luxury. Sweet, spicy, and irresistibly crunchy, these twists are a must-try for your next breakfast get-together.


  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • Thick-cut slices of bacon


  1. In a bowl, mix together brown sugar, red pepper, and black pepper. Coat each of the bacon slices in the spice mixture and set aside. 
  2. Next, take each slice of seasoned bacon and twist it tightly from end to end, creating a spiraled effect. The twist not only adds to the visual appeal but also helps to lock in the flavors as they cook.
  3. Place a cooling rack onto a baking sheet (to catch any drippings) and arrange your bacon twists on the rack. Preheat your smoker or oven to 400°F and carefully place the bacon inside. Cook for about 20 minutes, but keep an eye on them so they don’t char. 
  4. Once done, remove the bacon twists from the smoker and let them rest on parchment paper for about 15 minutes, and enjoy!
