Apple Cinnamon Bacon Bites

Since making the Sriracha Teriyaki Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites last week I have been thinking of other foods to wrap in bacon.  Sometimes the simplest of ingredients produce the best tasting results.  It’s not hard to make a bacon taste good of course, but these Apple Cinnamon Bacon Bites are out of this world good!

I love the pairing of the sweet apples with cinnamon and sugar wrapped up in bacon.   Since these Apple Cinnamon Bacon Bites have a touch of Cinnamon they would be perfect for Thanksgiving or a Christmas party.  Of course you don’t need to wait until you throw a party to try these!!!

To serve these up I suggest using toothpicks and placing them on a tray.   They are easier to just pick up that way and if you serve them in a bowl then they will be eaten so much faster.

For whatever reason people take less when things have a toothpick in them!  That’s not to say that these won’t be gone in 60 seconds, but maybe the last person to fill their plate might get some! lol

Tips and suggestions for making Bacon Wrapped Apples: 

  1. Gala, fuji or golden delicious apples are the best taste and texture.  I try to stick to the apples that have a little tartness, but are still sweet.  I also like to pick apples that are not too ripe or varieties that will get too mushy.  Any apple that you would bake in a pie other than a granny smith (too sour) would be great for these easy appetizers.

  1. Use plenty of cinnamon and sugar on the outside of the bacon.  You should be able to see a thin layer of the cinnamon sugar on the outside before baking.   I like to add even more once they are finished cooking too.  Apple Cinnamon Bacon Bites
  2. Cut the apples into a small size chunk for best results.  Smaller sized chunks allow the apples to cook up to a soft (but still have a bite to them) without burning the bacon.  Cut them down to around 1 inch long and 1/3 inch tall.  You don’t have to get out the tape measurer, but keeping them all roughly the same size will help them cook more evenly. 
  3. Choose thin sliced bacon over thicker cuts.  The thicker cuts of bacon are too thick for this particular recipe. Thin bacon will cook up faster and allow the apples to also cook quicker. 
  4. Bake until the edges of the bacon are deep brown and crispy.  The edges should be a deep brown color especially since there is sugar on these.  I love that caramelized bacon sugar! Yum!

These were a hit at a party. I had to turn them half way while cooking as the top was cooked but the underside was raw & sitting in a 1/4" pool of grease. Next time I will try a drip pan or broiler pan so the grease will drain while cooking.

Have you got an advice in terms of doing them in advance and freezing them?
