There are so many ways to incorporate bacon into your holiday gathering. In addition to all the recipes on Smithfield’s page, you can make the Baked Brown Sugar Smokies, Bacon Tater Tot Bombs or Black Pepper Bacon Biscuits served with your favorite jams.
- 1 pound thick cut bacon, cut in half to make two shorter wide strips out of each slice
- 1/2 pineapple, trimmed and cut into 1" chunks
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup hot sauce (your favorite hot wing sauce would be great)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut bacon in half and wrap each strip around a piece of pineapple.
Roll in the brown sugar, packing on the sugar onto the ends.
Spoon over a small amount of hot wing sauce over each bundle
If you want to help avoid a mess in the pan from the brown sugar line the pan with foil.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the bacon is crisp and the brown sugar is all bubbly.
