Bacon-Wrapped Pineapple, a Flavorful Power Snack!

bacon-wrapped-pineappleLooking for a flavor-packed, healthy snack recipe?  Give bacon-wrapped pineapple a try!  Two ingredients, twenty minutes, and you’re good to go.  This snack is loaded with nutrients that boost your mood (an amino acid in the bacon), provide pain-relief for your muscles (pineapple enzyme), and supply healthy energy.  It’s also free of gluten and processed sugar (but it’s still sweet and savory!)

Here’s all you need to do: preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, cut fresh pineapple into large bite-size chunks, wrap the pineapple chunks with a half strip piece of bacon each, and skewer them with toothpicks to hold the bacon on.  Once you’ve done that, bake them in the oven at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes.   In order to let air circulate around the bacon-wrapped pineapple chunks evenly, set them in the oven on a raised cooling rack with a baking pan underneath to catch the drippings.

After about 18 minutes check the bacon for your preferred doneness.  Personally, I like the flavor contrast achieved when the bacon is crisped, and the pineapple is soft and sweet.  Enjoy!
