I’m here to tell you that Bacon Wrapped Peaches are addictive. I have to limit how many I make, otherwise I end up eating half the tray before it makes it to the table.
These little lovelies can be baked in the oven or grilled outdoors. Although, I typically bake them in the oven while Ranger Craig is outdoors grilling the entrée.
During the summer I adore using ripe, fresh peaches. During the winter months, when I want to make these for football season or the holidays, I use local frozen peaches. Both work beautifully.
If I want the bacon extra crispy, I’ll pre-bake the bacon in my oven, just until it renders some of the fat and begins to cook. Just before it gets crispy, I wrap the bacon around the peaches and then finish in the oven. However, if I’m using a thin sliced bacon, I typically wrap and bake all at one time.
I adore a smokey, sweet combination of flavors and these Bacon Wrapped Peaches completely deliver. I love that I can use my locally raised bacon with my locally raised peaches for a locally prepared recipe. 😉
I also make this dish with pineapple spears. Yep, bacon wrapped pineapple. Also amazing!
I’m off to the races this week. Not actually the “races”, but I’m racing time and my schedule so this post is short and sweet. Literally!
Delicious Wishes and Loads of Love,
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 2-3 summer peaches, halved, pitted and each peach sliced into 6 wedges
- 8 ounces thin sliced bacon, each slice halved
- Toothpicks or party picks for serving
On occasion when I want to make these delicious treats but I can’t find fresh peaches or peaches are not in season, I’ll use good quality frozen peaches. Method of cooking is the same using the frozen peach. Don’t thaw the peaches prior to baking.
