These bacon wrapped pineapple bites were so good that I will be making these again for the coming Christmas dinner as appetizer :) I used smoked back bacon ( more lean ) It turned out crispy at the edges and juicy as you bite into the pineapple chunk that is wrapped by the bacon...mmmm so yummy delicious. You can serve these as finger food or appetizer. Every bite is addictive. I concoct my own sauce for glazing and WB was giving me the thumbs up as he was tucking in the bacon wrapped pineapple bites...as the saying goes ...' finger licking good ' :p You can either bake it or pan fried them. I pan fried them in shallow 1/2 inch of vegetable oil. You can use either canned pineapple chunks or fresh pineapple. I used fresh ones for a tangy flavor...it was truly AWESOME bites :) Try it to believe me !
lining them up for pan frying...you can bake them too

it is good if you can use fresh pineapple
my own concoct glazing sauce

and a drop of sesame oil
ready for serving
Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Bites - WB's Kitchen
6 pieces of Smoked Back Bacon
6 pineapple chunks
glaze: mix the ingredients together
2 tbsp of black vinegar
a drop of sesame oil
1/2 tsp of toasted white sesame seeds
1 tbsp of brown sugar
Set your oven to 375F.
Cut the pound of bacon in half. Take a half a slice of bacon, put a chunk of pineapple on one end of the bacon slice and roll up. Secure with a toothpick. Lay the bacon pineapple bundles onto the rack. Brush the prepared glaze sauce over the roll up and bake for at least 25 minutes, brush again half way through baking. The bites are ready when the bacon looks brown and crispy.
Heat up 1/2 inch oil in a shallow pan. When oil is hot, gently put in the roll up and pan fried them till crispy and brown. Take out and place in kitchen paper towel to drain off excess oil.
