Pineapple Bacon Rollups

This is a simple appetizer recipe that can be made ahead of time and popped in the oven before your company arrives.  Be sure and make a bunch!  These things always go fast!

  • 1 pound of pastured uncured bacon, cut in half (find healthy bacon here if you don't have a local source)
  • Bite-sized pieces/chunks of pineapple I used canned – save the juice
  • Maple syrup
  • Unrefined sugar if desired
  • Toothpicks


  • Wrap uncooked bacon around the pieces of pineapple and hold it together with a toothpick, set them in a 9 x 13 baking dish.  Drizzle a little of the pineapple juice on top and a little real maple syrup.  I also sprinkle on some organic palm/coconut sugar or organic granulated sugar – the more sweetener you use, the more caramelized it gets, but even with a light amount it's still really good because the pineapple is sweet, too.    Bake 375* for 30 minutes until hot and caramelized.  I like it almost burned, but not quite.
