Bacon Wrapped Apple Slices are just what the doctor ordered … well, sort of. Bacon makes everything better. (Gluten-free)
My sweet, and savory lovers here you go. These bacon wrapped apples have your name written all over them.
There is a saying that’s said very often in my house. Bacon makes everything better. It really does.
Bacon makes the world go round and turns that frown upside down. When I ventured myself back into eating meat I read to start with your favorite type of meat in a small quantity. That was bacon. I always craved the saltiness of the bacon when I was vegetarian.
Choosing to eat meat again was not an easy decision for me. Once I realized my gluten-intolerance I was loosing major calories from breads and flours. Being an active person and the importance of eating well-rounded meals I made the decision to begin consuming meat again.
I did a lot of research into meat before taking the plunge. It is important to get antibiotic free meat like always but with bacon especially it is important to get nitrate free bacon. I buy our bacon from a Michigan farm that provides antibiotic free meat, they deliver to my area once a month though. In a pinch I purchase the Applegate nitrate free bacon.
As I was making these Roland was unsure about this combination. As soon as they came out of the oven my taste tester was in the kitchen ready. One. . two . . three apple slices later, I began chuckling as he went for the fourth piece. I guess he liked them? Yes, the taste tester approved.
These sweet and salt treats were so delicious warm out of the oven. With a little bit of semi-cold slice melting on top of each slice; I actually felt they were even better cold!
Or hecks, very similar to the gluten-free peanut butter cookies. Make them and eat them all.
So if you don’t get anything else out of this post today take one thing away. . . Everything is better with bacon.
