Sometimes it’s the Simple Things!



Even though it’s not so simple to say … these “Bacon-Pepper-Pineapple-Poppers” are a simple crowd pleaser!  They are – without a doubt – one of the best appetizer treats you can add to your cookbook whether you are eating paleo or not.

I got the original recipe from  Here is my quick change-up to make a dozen little crowd-pleasing poppers:

  • 12 chunks (about 1″ each) of fresh pineapple (@ $2 at Meijers)
  • 1 ancient sweet bell pepper – cut to 1″ squares (@ $1 at Meijers)
  • 6 slices of Applegate Farms bacon – cut in half lengthwise (@$3 at Meijers)
  • Smoked paprika
  • 12 Toothpicks

Preheat the oven to 375F . Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Stack one chunk of pineapple on top of  square of pepper.  Wrap the bacon around (ends at the bottom) and secure with a toothpick.  Arrange on the baking sheet and dust with smoked paprika.  Bake for 25 min or until the bacon is crispy and the peppers are softened.

Really – these are so simple and delicious, you will make them for every special occasion!  Enjoy!!

Each popper costs about $.50

You might think you can just eat two … but, even if you eat 4, that is $2/serving 🙂
