Greetings Fellow Bacon Lovers……
I’m cooking away in the kitchen for Christmas!
Yes indeed it’s time for your King to pass on another possible suggestion for you to try when you have that company over for the holiday. We at the Castle Baconia don’t have company – in fact we close the place down for Christmas so all of the Castle Staff and your King can spend the day with FAMILY! YAY!!!!
The recipe I have for you today may sound weird but trust me………….would your King send you in the wrong direction? Heck no……………….this is a really delicious appetizer and you should try it because not only is it EASY it’s YUMMY.
Bacon Wrapped Apricots
8 strips of bacon
1 package dried apricots
1/2 cup Honey BBQ sauce
1 Tablespoon of Honey
1-1/2 Teaspoon mustard (any kind…..if you want hot mustard it works but we used good old yellow mustard)
Cut each bacon strip into thirds LONG-wise so you have three long pieces of bacon from each strip. Cook until not totally cooked but slightly crispy and drain. Wrap the bacon strip around one of the dried apricots and insert toothpick. Put the apricots on an ungreased cookie sheet or baking pan and cook at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes until bacon is totally crisp. Combine the BBQ sauce, honey and mustard in a bowl and serve as a “dip” !!
Is this good? OH YES INDEEDY IT’S GOOD!
I would never lead you astray but certainly NEVER before the guy in the red suit comes to visit. I’m staying on the NICE LIST for sure!
Yeah he sure does so I’m making a big batch of these appetizers to leave out with a big glass of milk for him when he comes by!
All of us in the Castle want to wish you and your family the HAPPIEST and MERRIEST of Christmases………….and if you can include bacon in some of your recipes – I think not only SANTA will be happy but all of your family will be too!
