Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Olives

Recipe by  

"Absolutely delicious and surprisingly simple recipe! How can only TWO ingredients be so fantastic? The two may not sound like a match, but you will be in love after one bite! Great appetizer - for parties, tailgating and more. I get requests for this at all of our get togethers."

Directions

  1. Wrap each olive with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  2. Preheat a grill for medium heat. When hot, lightly oil the grate.
  3. Grill the olives until the bacon has crisped, about 10 minutes. Turn frequently and keep a spray bottle handy in case of flare-ups from the bacon grease. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to absorb any excess grease.

I am sorry to say that even though I am a major olive lover I could not do this recipe! It was WAAAY too salty! I even purchased UNcured bacon to cut down on the salt but this was almot inedible! I had a large dinner party and had this as an appetizer. I did not test prior to since I was so sure it would be great! I was shocked to see a guest's face all puckered up. I grabbed one and saw what she meant.... out of all of my apps this one was barely touched! I guess I can chop up and put on things later..but as a one bit app it does not work. salt salt salt....sorry to say.

My mom used to make these in a pan when I was young and I loved them! On the grill is even better. I get requests for them at every party. If you are using small olives, you can cut the bacon slices into quarters and they fit nicely around the olives.

I make these all the time and they are always gone immediately!!! I use the large jalepeno stuffed olives and bake at 350 until bacon looks cooked through, turning a couple of times. Yummy!!!!!

These were delicious! I used turkey bacon to make them healthier.

These are a salty treat! They are very easy to make and people tend love them or hate them, but I always get a ton of attention when I bring these to a gathering!

We had this Saturday when we were tailgating. My friend wrapped up the olives before we went, so they just had to be thrown on the grill when we got there. Before wrapping, she put a little bit of canned cream cheese in each one. YUM!
