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

Directions

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

Made these to pair with some Maple Bacon Moonshine Old Fashions. Everyone enjoyed this unique pairing. Before wrapping the cherries in the bacon and sticking them on the skewer, I smoked the cherries for an hour on my Traeger @180 degrees. Then wrapped in bacon, placed on the skewer. I upped the heat to 400 and threw the skewers back on. After 10 minutes, I turned them over and let them go another 10. I was using thick cut bacon, so I increased the heat to 450 for an additional 10 minutes before pulling them off the grill. Let them cool, and garnished our signature cocktails. They were a hit!
