I'm making Bacon wrapped Pineapple for my "new 40" birthday party on May 30th.
- 1 pound Bacon
- 1 can Chunked Pineapple (large Chunks)
- ½ cups Brown Sugar
Cut the pound of bacon in half. Put the brown sugar in a shallow bowl. Take a half a slice of bacon and dredge it through the brown sugar. Put a chunk of pineapple on one end of the bacon slice and roll up. Secure with a toothpick.
I plan on putting them in the smoker or doing on the grill to get the bacon crisp faster.
The original recipe calls for a 375* oven -
Put a cookie cooling rack into a foil-lined jelly roll pan.
Lay the bacon pineapple bundles onto the rack.
Bake for at least 25 minutes, or until the bacon looks brown and crispy.
Sometimes I pop them under the broiler for the last few minutes just to get them really crisp. But watch out – the sugar will burn!
Try to wait for them to cool slightly – only because they will burn your lips if too hot!
