Savory Bacon Pineapple Bites
1 pineapple peeled cored and cut in chunks
1 lb bacon (not too thin nor too thick)
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
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cut raw bacon in half and wrap each half around a pineapple chunk.
Secure with toothpick and place in shallow baking dish.
Combine honey, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, ginger, ketchup, pineapple juice and sriracha in small saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes; stirring several times.
Place bacon wrapped pineapple in oven.
Cook until bacon is browned and crispy; approximately 35-40 minutes.
Baste with sauce and cook for 10 minutes.
Baste again and cook for 5 more minutes turning on the broiler the last 1-2 minutes of cooking.
Stay close by because broilers are unpredictable.
Please see additional notes below!
Precooking the bacon for a few minutes before wrapping in pineapple will help the bacon stay together better while wrapping around the pineapple and in the baking process.
