Bacon Wrapped Maraschino Cherry Appetizer

In case there was any doubt in your mind, here's further proof that just about anything is better with bacon:@) Bacon Wrapped Maraschino Cherries would be a fun last minute appy for Easter dinner.
Super easy and while I didn't experiment, I kept thinking they would be good with a mustard dip?
The cute bunny picks were 97¢ at Walmart.

Cherry Rolls/Bacon Wrapped Maraschino Cherries-adapted from Food.com
4 slices bacon cut in half long ways
12 maraschino cherries, drained well
  1. Cook bacon until clear and still soft, don't over cook or it won't roll.
  2. Cut each slice into 3 pieces.
  3. Wrap each piece around a cherry, secure with a toothpick.
  4. Chill-I didn't do this.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes-mine took about 8 minutes.
  6. Serve warm.
Notes:
  • I lightly rendered the bacon and then just cut it into thirds, I didn't slice it in half long ways first. I might try that next time (it sure will go further). 
  • I secured them with a wooden toothpick for baking and used the fun plastic ones for serving.

  4. Hi Lynnie! Oh, now I'd have to think about popping on of these into my mouth but I agree with Beth - those toothpicks are adorable! I scrolled down and saw the knitted bunny you made and it's so cute! You're so good. I can crochet but I could never learn to knit.
    Be a sweetie and Happy Easter,
    Shelia :)
