let's start with a crowd pleaser!

before the baking
I have been asked for the recipe for our BACON TWISTS a lot, 
finally i find time to calculate amounts, and find a "lotti-way" to describe how to make everyone bacon happy!

Bacon Twist Recipe

Dough   :           3 1/2 cups flour ( i used a mix of    
                          whole wheat and regular before and it 
                           turns out great too)
                    1 package fast acting dry yeast 
                    1 teaspoon salt
                    1 1/2 Tbsp sugar or honey
                    optional: add mediterranean herbs and spices 
                                (eg garlic powder, thyme, rosemary,oregano,  

               mix in a large bowl
               add  1 Tbsp olive oil 
                    1 1/4 cups warm  water ( about 120 F or follow        
                          instruction on yeast package) 
               knead dough(might need to add a pinch of water or flour to       
                          form "firm" not sticky dough)
               divide into about 12 pieces (depending on the size you      
                          like,they will rise a little bit)
                                      form dough into ropes 

Do the twist: take  bacon slices and wrap around each dough piece. 
              before setting on a cookie sheet twist the dough 
              beat 1 whole egg with a fork
              brush on twists and 
              sprinkle with topping , for example sesame seeds, poppy     
                                                seeds ,thyme
                 let rise on cookie sheet for about 30 min
Bake         : in preheated oven at 380F for 20 -25 min (adjust   
                  time if needed)
