Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F; soak 12 bamboo skewers in warm water (so they won't burn in oven).
  2. Line the bottom of broiler a pan with foil for ease of cleaning, then top with broiler-pan rack.
  3. Mix together brown sugar (or heat-stable sugar substitute, for diabetics and lowcarbers), mustard powder, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  4. Pour onto waxed paper and lightly shake paper to spread mixture evenly.
  5. One strip at a time, press the bacon into the sugar mixture to coat.
  6. Twist each piece of coated bacon into a bamboo skewer and place on broiler-pan rack.
  7. Bake 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees F, until almost crisp and sugar coating is bubbly.
