Bacon-wrapped Cherry Tomatoes Recipe


Recipe: Bacon Wrapped Cherry Tomatoes

1 pack cherry tomatoes (12 oz)
1 pack bacon (12 oz)
Toothpicks (soak the toothpicks in water for a few hours)
Nanami Togarashi (Japanese assorted chili pepper)


Cut the bacon strip into half-length. Put the cherry tomato towards the end of the bacon strip and wrap tight. Hold the cherry tomato with a toothpick, set aside. Sprinkle some Nanami Togarashi onto the bacon.

Heat up an indoor grill and grill until the bacon turns brown and crisp. For an outdoor grill, use low heat. Serve immediately.

Cook’s note:

You can get Nanami Togarashi at the Asian section of any food stores.

    Ooo yum. That’s a lovely combination of flavours. The French do a similar entree – prunes with bacon wrapped around each prune, then grilled! Yum!

  2. Oh for the love of food!

    hmmmm… in Beijing AGAIN are we? Is L_v_ in the air, gurl? Ha!Ha!

    Probably the best example of “less is more” photography I’ve seen this year. I’m always praising Haalo for this sort of thing, but you really hit the peak with these shots.

    steamy tells me that you have secret “pill” for youth. Are these cherry bacon tomatoes part of the secret?!

    Cough it up! ;)
