Bacon wrapped pineapple

I love creating party appetizer recipes and this one makes the low FODMAP diet taste soooooo good.

The salty bacon paired with the sweet and tangy pineapple is a winning combo.IMG_0980editJust wrap half a slice of thinly sliced cooked bacon around a bite size piece of pineapple. Drizzle with a little pure maple syrup and feel the love.

IMG_0974editTo save time–I bought pre-baked bacon and heated it up in the microwave.  Wrapped it around the pineapple pieces and drizzled with a little pure maple syrup.  I baked these tasty morsels  for about 5 minutes to just warm up the pineapple. If you want, you can cook for a few minutes longer to brown up the pineapple and crisp the bacon a bit. Either way…it is all good. 🙂

Russ and I are hosting  a little ‘ugly sweater’ party this weekend! 🙂 …So the appetizer planning is fully underway.  I like to have fun, easy but creative appetizers that everyone can enjoy.  Even though bacon isn’t the healthiest of foods, it makes a nice treat at a party.  Hopefully these will be a hit!  Have a great rest of the week!
