So simple and still the first appetizer to disappear at every party. It has become a constant request during the holiday seasons. I like to make them and freeze them on a cookie sheet and then store them in a big zip lock bag. When I have surprise guests or just need an appetizer, I pull out how many I need and pop them under the broiler. In 15 minutes I have a tasty ‘sweet & savory’ bite. I accompany this with a sweet and savory sauce and bingo… A Winner!
Bacon Wrapped Pineapple in a Black Raspberry Soy Sauce
1 16 oz can pineapple chunks
1 lb bacon
1/2 cup black raspberry preserves
1/2 cup soy sauce
Drain the pineapples and set aside. Cut bacon into thirds, (it’s easiest to do this while bacon is still in the package). Create an assembly line for yourself. Line up the bacon, place a pineapple chunk in the center of each piece of bacon. Roll the bacon around the pineapple and secure with a toothpick. Broil for 10 minutes. In a small bowl mix equal part black raspberry and soy sauce. Pour in the bottom of desired serving dish. When bacon is done, simply place on top of sauce and serve. Delicious!
