  1. Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  2. Cut each bacon strip into 3 pieces. Wrap 1 piece of bacon around an olive and secure with a toothpick; place on a broiling pan. Continue with remaining bacon pieces and olives.
  3. Broil in the preheated oven until bacon is crisp, but not burned, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Any Spanish olive works. Pitted or blue cheese-stuffed are just as tasty.
