This is one of my favorite appetizers. I say it serves 18 people, but if no one stops me, I will eat the whole batch myself and start making more.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • Wrap each cherry with a bacon half, secure with toothpick and arrange on baking sheet. Drizzle reserved cherry juice over wrapped cherries.

  • Broil in preheated oven until bacon is crisped to your liking, 3 to 10 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Cooking time may be increased if you want the bacon crisp, but I think that the bacon is better soft.

Although I have never tried it, I imagine that this recipe would also be good on a grill with a
grate small enough that the cherries don't fall through.

Overall i was very surprised with the flavor of this. It actually tasted pretty good. I could see this being served at a wine/cheese type party or just a party with finger foods as it tasted great at room temp. My oven has broil temperatures so i broiled mine at 475. I checked after 7 minutes and noticed the tops were crisp but the bottoms were soggy so i flipped them and cooked for 7 more minutes(14 min total). I also didn't use toothpicks the bacon stayed wrapped just fine and found i only needed 1/3 of a strip of bacon per cherry..and could probably cut that back to 1/4 if you were making these to feed a crowd:) Read More
