Sunday Funday: Bacon – the ultimate comfort food AND pretty appetizer

Unless you are a vegan or vegetarian, you likely like bacon, yes? It’s the ultimate comfort/breakfast/winter food, or hey, even BBQ season food! Who doesn’t like the smell of bacon frying in the morning, seriously?


But, bacon can be also be a pretty and delicious appetizer!


  • 20 Bacon slices
  • 10 Mushrooms
  • 10 Prunes
  • Maple syrup and greens for garnish



  • Roll mushrooms and prunes in individual bacon strips
  • Ensure they are wrapped tightly
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C)
  • Place tightly in a roaster, cover and place in oven for at least 30 minutes
  • Remove from oven, uncover and drain fat
  • Place back in the oven uncovered for approx. 15 minutes
  • Remove from oven
  • Garnish with microgreens and maple syrup
  • Serve warm or cool – tastes great either way!


Try it for your family today (my kids love these!), or when entertaining your guests!

Happy Sunday!
