Bacon-Wrapped Apple Pie Bites

Bacon-Wrapped Apple Pie Bites


We love the combination of salty, fatty bacon, slightly sweet apples, and warm spices.
  • 8 pieces Bacon, Raw, (pieces=slices)
  • 24 pieces Apple, Granny Smith, dehydrated/dried (not freeze-dried)
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon, ground
  • 1 pinch Nutmeg, ground
  • 1 pinch Allspice, ground
  1. Place apple slices in a bowl. Add cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice and toss to evenly coat apples.
  2. Cut each slice of bacon into three even pieces, width-wise, and wrap each piece around the middle of one apple slice. My uncooked bacon is 9 inches long, and cutting it into thirds gives me a perfect length for each apple slice. If your bacon is considerably shorter or your apple slices are really thick, cut the bacon in half instead of thirds.
  3. Place seam-side down on a baking sheet (with a rack, if you have one) and bake at 350 degrees F for 23-25 minutes, watching them closely. Bacon should be crisp, but you don\'t want it to turn dark. I tested these at several different temperatures, and this produced the best result.
  4. Place on a towel or drip rack and serve when cooled enough to handle.
  5. When these are baked with the bacon seam-side down, they are self-sealing, and I have found toothpicks unnecessary. If you are serving them at a gathering and feel toothpicks would be more convenient for your guests, simply insert them right before serving.
