JD and I had a great weekend...relaxing day together on Saturday, then had a great time Sunday visiting friends at our old neighborhood. Nearly everyone from the "hood" was there, even other defectors like us! BP, as usual, pulled out all the stops so there was waaaaaay too much food...burgers and dogs, sausages, grilled onions, roasted red peppers, fries, chips and queso....
These yummy bites were my contribution...so incredibly simple and yet so incredibly delicious. Once the plate cooled off (be careful; they are VERY hot at first!) they were gone in a flash. Next time I need to make a double batch.
Bacon-Wrapped Pineapple Bites
adapted from Tasty Kitchen
1 pound bacon
1 can pineapple chunks, drained
1/2 cup brown sugar
Cut pound of bacon in half. Crumble brown sugar into shallow bowl. Take a bacon slice and dredge in brown sugar to coat both sides. Wrap the bacon around a chunk of pineapple and secure with a toothpick. Repeat with remaining bacon and pineapple chunks.
Grill over hot coals until bacon is crispy and cooked through. If you don't have a grill, place bites on rack rack in shallow pan lined with foil and bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Use the broiler if necessary to get them nice and crispy. Let cool slightly before devouring.
