Ingredients

  • 12 large dried plums, pitted
  • 1 slice lemon
  • 1/4 Cup finely chopped celery
  • 2 cooked artichoke hearts, finely chopped
  • 3 Ounces cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 6 slices bacon

Directions

Soak the dried plums overnight in water with the lemon slice. Drain and pat dry.

Combine the celery, artichoke hearts, cream cheese, lemon juice, salt, and cayenne. Stuff the dried plums with the mixture. Cut the bacon slices in half. Wrap a slice around each dried plum; fasten with toothpicks. Grill until the bacon is crisp, 4 to 5 minutes on each side.

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.
