Fresh pineapple chunks are wrapped in crisp bacon and basted with a slightly spicy tangy sweet sauce.  They are perfect for game day, cocktail night, baby and bridal showers.  Your guests will absolutely love them!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 lb bacon (not too thin nor too thick)
  • 1 pineapple peeled cored and cut in chunks (see notes)
  • Toothpicks
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons pineapple juice.(buy a precut pineapple and use that juice)
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce (hot chili sauce)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut raw bacon in half and place on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil in single layer.  Bake for 3 minutes, flip and bake for another 3 minutes. Let cool for 5-10 minutes. Wrap each piece of bacon around a pineapple chunk. Secure with toothpick and place back on the baking sheet covered with aluminum foil.  Place in oven.
  2. Combine honey, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, ginger, ketchup, pineapple juice and sriracha in small saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes; stirring several times.
  3. Using brush baste with sauce after they have cooked for 20 minutes. Bake for 10 additional minutes or until bacon is crispy and the pineapple is heated through.  Serve promptly with remaining sauce.

Notes

  • You can use fresh or canned pineapple for this recipe.  Fresh pineapple is more acidic so always precook your bacon for best results.
  • Choose a bacon that is not too thin or too thick.  You want it slightly on the thick side but I have cooked bacon that is almost 1/4 inch thick and that is too thick for it to be easily pliable.
  • For best results baste after the bacon has lightly browned.  The sauce is somewhat acidic and you don’t want it breaking down the bacon so don’t start too early!
  • This appetizer is best assembled right before baking. If you start too soon the acid in the pineapple will break down the bacon and it will split.
  • Serve the remaining sauce in a bowl for dipping.  It is absolutely delicious and perfect for dipping.
