  • 1 lb. center cut bacon, Oscar Meyer original
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • cracked black pepper


  • baking tray
  • mixing bowl


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Grab a baking tray. Set it aside.
  • Add 1 cup of grated parmesan to a bowl.
  • Take one piece of bacon at a time and run it through the cheese. Make sure it is well coated on both sides.
  • Twist the parmesan bacon as tightly as possible and line it on the baking tray.
  • Repeat for all the bacon slices.
  • Hit the bacon with a few turns of fresh cracked black pepper before baking in the oven.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes on one side.
  • Turn every 4 minutes after that until cooked to your liking.
  • My twists took about 20 minutes to bake.
  • Place the cooked twists on a paper towel to absorb and excess grease.
  • Sprinkle with a little more parmesan and black pepper.
  • Serve once cool.
