Food TikTok is at it again, and this time it’s a simple twist on cooking bacon.
While baking strips on a parchment paper or foil-lined sheet tray in the oven to get consistent, perfectly cooked bacon is nothing new, this trend has been dubbed “a perfect combination of crispy and chewy.”
Richard Hagen, of Richard Eats on TikTok, told “Good Morning America” he was “exclusively” baking his bacon to avoid “the splattering of grease” from a frying pan and shared his take on this new method.
“You take the raw bacon and twist [so it looks] like a straw. Think of unwrapping a giant tootsie roll wrapper but in reverse,” he said, adding that after his attempts he found it is easiest with thick-cut bacon.

To cook it, Hagen arranged the twists on a cooling rack on top of a foil-lined sheet pan, which he said “allows heat to circulate” and makes for easy cleanup, then popped it in a 350 to 375 F oven for 25 to 30 minutes. “It’s crispy and chewy at the same time and delicious,” he said of the final result.
“These could be used in bloody marys, or stand them up in cute cups for guests,” he suggested.
