Today’s recipe for 75 Awesome Recipes hails from Really, the best thing i can say about this recipe is the finished product *almost* lasted 10 minutes… with myself as the only masticator…

Per Taylor (whom this recipe was taken from) :

  • For the sauce:
  • 2 Tbsps Brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Reduced-sugar Ketchup
  • 1/4 Cup Chili sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar free grape jelly
  • 2 Tbsps Apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh garlic, minced
  • For the pineapple:
  • 5 strips of turkey bacon
  • 1/2 of a 20 oz tin of pineapple chunks, drained (about 30 chunks)
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a small baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium sauce pan on high heat, combine all the sauce ingredients.
  3. Bring the sauce to a boil, stirring constantly.
  4. Once the sauce begins to boil, turn the heat down to medium and let the sauce simmer until it begins to thicken, about 5-10 minutes.
  5. While the sauce simmers, slice each piece of bacon in half and then each half into 3. This would make each strip of bacon equal 6 strips.
  6. Dry the pineapple chunks between two pieces of paper towel and wrap each with one bacon strip, securing with a toothpick.
  7. Spread the pineapple chunks out onto the prepared baking tray, and pour the sauce evenly over top.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the sauce is sticky and thick and the bacon is fully cooked.
  9. Devour!

Deviations i took liberty of:

“Chili sauce” was sriracha because… it’s what i had…

Ketchup was Hunt’s 100% Natural (because… close enough).

Used a full 8 oz can of chunked pineapple (was around 18 pieces of pineapple)

Since there was extra bacon, some of the pineapple was double wrapped…

And by bacon, i mean it was pig bacon.

Outside of these deviations, the recipe was (surprisingly) followed.
