RECIPE OF THE WEEK
Last week, y’all voted for some scrumptious appetizers:
Feel free to use the recipe below, or make up your own! This is kitchen creativity, my friends!
Tamaranean Prepared Bacon Wrapped Peaches
Creates roughly 25 peach slices
- 1 29 oz can of peaches in 100% juice (Or 4 fresh peaches)
- 12 oz bacon (Or your fave bacon substitute!)
- 13 large basil leaves
- Olive oil
- Balsamic glaze (Store-bought or homemade)
- Set a grill to low heat and preheat for 10 minutes or so, brush the grill grates with a paper towel dabbed in olive oil.
- Drain peaches and set them aside
- Tear one large basil leaf in half lengthwise and then horizontally. Place one small basil lead on each side of the peaches.
- Wrap each peach slice and basil leaves with a slice of bacon. Pin the loose end of the bacon slice with a toothpick. Repeat with remaining peaches.
- Brush the bacon wrapped peaches lightly with olive oil so the bacon doesn’t stick to the grill. Grill the peaches until the bacon is cooked, turning so all sides are evenly cooked.
- Transfer to a serving platter and remove toothpicks. Drizzle with store-bought or homemade balsamic glaze.
- Serve hot or at room temperature.
Voila! A beautiful appetizer full of class and pizzazz! Just like our favorite Tamaranean Princess! (Don’t worry if it’s a little uh… charred?)
