Seriously, who needs pineapple & cheese on sticks when you can have these bad boys?! Sweet pineapple wrapped in smokey bacon dripping in sticky BBQ sauce. Oh yeah… you know you’re giving these BBQ Bacon Pineapple Bites a go! Here is what you will need to make approx 30 – 35.
- 1 x 565g Tin of Pineapple Chunks
- 6 Strips of Smoked Streaky Bacon
- approx 100ml BBQ Sauce
- 30-35 Cocktail Sticks
BBQ Bacon Pineapple Bites Recipe
First thing’s first, take those cocktail sticks and pop them into a small bowl of water to soak for 10-15 minutes. Then preheat your oven to 180°C/Fan 170°C & line a large baking sheet with baking paper or a silicone mat.
Drain the pineapple chunks and dry off any excess liquid with some kitchen roll. Set to one side.
Slice each bacon strip in half lengthways, then each half into 3.
Wrap each piece of pineapple in a bacon piece and skewer with a cocktail stick. Place spaced out on the prepared baking tray.
Squeeze a bit of BBQ sauce over each bite then place into the preheated oven to bake for 20 – 25 mins until the bacon is cooked through and the sauce is sticky. (You can be way more generous than I was!)
Place onto a serving plate and devour immediately!
These BBQ Bacon Pineapple Bites are so easy & actually quite therapeutic to make! You’ve got to admit, they are a million miles better than those old and tiresome cheese & pineapple sticks you got a parties when you were a kid. I would much rather have had a belly full of these babies! These would be just perfect for your New Years Eve party, go on, give them a go!
I Hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.
