Bacon-Wrapped Apricots

October 24, 2011

Mediterranean dried apricots are plump, pitted, whole, dried apricots that are delicious.  These make great appetizers or an easy snack for kiddos after school (yes, they’ll eat them….it’s bacon after all!).
28 Mediterranean dried apricots (7oz. package)
1 package nitrate/nitrite free bacon
course pepper
Cut bacon slices into thirds and wrap each apricot with the bacon slices, securing with toothpick.  Place on a baking sheet lined with foil, leaving a small amount of room between each piece. Place sheet in oven and bake for approximately 15 minutes per side.   Flip halfway through and sprinkle them with pepper. They’re finished cooking when the bacon is thoroughly cooked and slightly dark in spots.
**I’ve also made these with water chestnuts, which add a different texture, but equally as delicious. Cut water chestnuts in half crosswise, fold apricot around chestnut, wrap bacon slice around apricot; secure with toothpick and bake as directed.
