Bacon and fruitcakes

Hey.... I don't do recipes.... mostly.  I mean, if I make something totally awesome.... I keep it to myself. However, this past Christmas eve my nephew celebrated the birth of Baby Bacon Jesus by whipping up a slew of bacon-themed appetizers...  This one was awesome.....and I say awesome in a totally awesome way....... So just a little post-yule treat for everyone....  I would have sent some, but I ate 'em.... you have to make your own.

  • 12 slices Bacon, cut in half
  • 24 dried apricot halves
  • 1/2 cup plum jam
  • Heat oven to 350 degrees farenheit.
  • Wrap 1/2 slice of Bacon around an apricot half, secure with a toothpick.
  • Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake 20–25 minutes or until the Bacon is brown & crisp.
  • Turn once during baking.
  • While the Bacon is cooking mix the jam & soy sauce in a saucepan and cook over low heat until the jam has melted and mixed with the soy sauce.
  • Remove from oven and place on paper towels to remove excess grease.
  • Serve dipping sauce with the bacon-apricot appetizer
But I would like to send a gift 
Happy Happy...Merry Merry....  for all my Internet-bloggy friends .... I have fruitcake

I thought this just about awful enough to be good. Oddly the Contrarian nixed it, but I might try it anyway. You did forget to say how much soy sauce. :O

And don't send the fruitcake!

My Nephew hosted a 'engagement party'...he and Sarah made it a bacon snack buffet... bacon wrapped jalapenos, bacon wrapped figs, shredded bacon stuffed mushrooms.... it was great! oh, and then we had http://www.mcphee.com/shop/products/Last-Supper-After-Dinner-Mints.html

Bacon still smells good to me after all these years without it.

I am saying awesome about this. It has some of my favorite elements. Bacon, jam and apricots.

It does sound delicious but I'll opt for the fruitcake.
