• Super Bowl Bites: Pineapple Bacon Poppers

    Pineapple Bacon Poppers | stupideasypaleo.com

    I’ll be the first one to admit, I don’t watch football and I’m not going to any Super Bowl parties (I probably just lost some faithful readers with that admission). I will, however, make it all up to you with a super-simple appetizer bite with everyone’s FAVORITE food: bacon! That’s right, I can sense I’m forgiven already. These little morsels of goodness were inspired by my friend Stacy who brought bacon-wrapped pineapple to a brunch last weekend. Immediately I started dreaming about making something that tasted like Hawaiian pizza on a skewer and these came into being. Genius!

     

    Super Bowl Bites: Pineapple Bacon Poppers

    Preparation 20 mins 2017-03-27T00:20:00+00:00
    Cook Time 25 mins 2017-03-27T00:25:00+00:00
    Serves 18-24 pieces     adjust servings

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 of a fresh pineapple
    • 6-8 mini bell peppers (or 1-2 medium bell peppers – red, yellow or orange are sweetest)
    • 6 slices of bacon (I like Applegate Farms or Nieman Ranch)
    • Smoked paprika
    • Toothpicks

    Instructions

    1. Preheat the oven to 375F (190C). Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
    2. Peel and core the pineapple. Cut into moderately-sized chunks (take half the pineapple and cut it into quarters, then chunk).
    3. Cut the tops off the bell peppers and scoop out the seeds. Cut the peppers into pieces that are roughly the same size as the pineapple chunks.
    4. Cut each slice of bacon in half lengthwise, then in half crosswise to get 4 strips (or you could wrap half a piece of bacon around if you prefer a meatier bite).
    5. Wrap the bacon around (ends at the bottom) and secure with a toothpick.
    6. Arrange the yummy bacon morsels on the baking sheet and dust with smoked paprika.
    7. Bake for 25 min or until the bacon is crispy and the peppers are softened.

    1. These were def delish!!!! Never would have thought to put the two together and Hawaiian pizza is exactly what came to mind 🙂

    2. What is the carb and protein count? All nutrition info would help. As I am on Keto diet. Thanks!

      1. Hi Lynn…here at Stupid Easy Paleo, macronutrient counts are not provided. My best suggestion is to get the MyFitnessPal app where you’ll be able to enter the recipe ingredients and get the counts from there.

    3. These look amazing! Curious why they aren’t W30? I thought pineapple, bacon and pepper were all compliant. Thanks!
