Squash and Bacon Appetizers

Pat Duran


Tried this recipe today from Chow.com... and I have to say it was so good...although it was sprinkled with salt and pepper in the original recipe- my sweet tooth begged to differ so I have tweaked this recipe to please my sweet tooth! LOL
It's an easy appetizer and who doesn't like easy and bacon?

  • 12 oz
    peeled, seeded and cubed squash (40 pieces)
  • 1 tsp
    kosher salt (i used 1/4 cup brown sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp
    pepper ( i did not use)
  • 2 tsp
    olive oil ( i used 2 tablespoon melted butter)
  • 4 slice
    uncooked bacon (i used 12 slices)

How to Make Squash and Bacon Appetizers


  1. Heat oven to 450^. Place oven rack in the upper third.
    In a large bowl, toss the prepared squash pieces with the melted butter then into the brown sugar; until evenly covered. Cut each slice of bacon in 3 pieces and roll a piece of squash in each piece until the bacon is wrapped around the squash like a belt; (you want it to overlap slightly).
  2. Place the squash pieces seam side down on a baking sheet and repeat to wrap all the squash.
    Roast until the squash is fork tender and the bacon has crisped about 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and place a tooth pick into each piece and place on serving plate or tray, great with a little cranberry sauce.
