Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Appetizers
By Ro Morse
PADUCAH, KY - Banks Market Recipe of the Week - Makes about 36 individual appetizers

1 fresh pineapple (you could use canned pineapple chunks)
2 medium bell peppers (red, yellow and/or orange are sweetest)
12 slices Applewood bacon
Smoked paprika
36 toothpicks

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cover a jelly roll baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Peel and core the pineapple. Cut it into quarters and then into large bite-size chunks. Cut the tops off the bell peppers. Remove seeds. Cut the peppers into pieces that are about the same size as the pineapple chunks. Cut each slice of bacon into three equal pieces. Place on the foil-lined pan and partially cook for about 5-10 minutes, just long enough for it to start to cook. Remove from oven. Let it cool. Take foil, with partially cooked bacon on it, off the pan and set on cabinet. Reline the pan with new sheet of foil (or parchment). Wrap the bacon around a pineapple chunk and bell pepper piece and secure with a toothpick. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the bacon is crispy and the peppers are softened. Lightly sprinkle with paprika. Remove cooked pineapple pieces from baking sheet and place on serving platter. Just enjoy every juicy and flavorful bite.
