Bacon-Wrapped Banana Bites

This recipe is full of so much win, it's honestly ridiculous. Let's break it down. First, it's bananas, which are basically a super-fruit. They're sweet, delicious, easy to find, and healthy. WIN. Then you consider that they are bite-sized. Hello! No utensils necessary, easy to share, and full of entertaining and portion-control opportunity. WIN. Third, it's freakin' wrapped in bacon. WIN. Then you consider that they take about three minutes to prep... even more WIN!

Notes

Note: If you're more of a crispy bacon person, you can also fry these bites in a little oil on the stove. If you do that, I would recommend using a toothpick to hold the bacon in place. Fry them up evenly on each side until you get your desired crispiness! 

Ingredients

  • 2 bananas
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Cut the bananas into 1- to 2-inch slices (about 4 pieces per banana). Cut the bacon into pieces long enough to wrap all the way around the banana (2-3 pieces per strip of bacon). Lay flat on a nonstick baking sheet. Lightly sprinkle with brown sugar. Roll the banana up in the lightly sugared bacon strips and position 1-2 inches apart on baking sheets. Bake in the oven until desired crispiness is achieved, 25-30 minutes. Remove, let cool, and share with friends!

Bacon-Wrapped Shopping Tip

Stocking up on no-cook items like cheese, nuts, olives, crackers, and dips will cut down on prep time and help ensure you have enough food for any unexpected guests.

Bacon-Wrapped Cooking Tip

When preparing appetizers try to avoid repetition of similar foods and flavors - aim for variety in textures, colors, and cooking methods.
