  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick aluminum foil. Take each strip of bacon and twist it along the length being careful to not stretch, just twist. Place the twisted strip on the prepared baking sheet and repeat with the rest, nestling them close together on the baking sheet.
  2. In a small bowl, add the brown sugar, thyme, dry mustard, paprika, garlic powder and plenty of black pepper. Mix with a fork until combined.
  3. Sprinkle the sugar mixture all over the bacon. Bake for about 40 minutes. The twists will be slightly flimsy. Let the bacon cool on the baking sheet for 30 minutes, loosening every 10 minutes so they don’t stick to the baking sheet. They will firm up once cooled down.
