Pineapple Wrapped in Bacon – Milk Free Recipes
So 5 years ago, my husband and I thought we were so very clever and made Pineapple Wrapped in Bacon for someone’s party. It was a HUGE hit. We thought we made it up, but I need to make it again today for his work luau, and googled it out of curiosity. Well, apparently the whole world copied us!! Here’s Rachel Ray’s version:
1 pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into half-inch chunks, about 40 chunks
1 pound sliced lean bacon, about 20 slices
Pre-heat the oven to 425°F.
Cut bacon strips in half making 2 equal size pieces, about 4 inches each. Wrap each half-strip of bacon around a pineapple chunk, pierce it with a toothpick and place on a baking sheet. Bake until the bacon is crispy, about 15-20 minutes.
I personally, pre-fry the bacon just a bit because I feel like it cooks better around the pineapple.
