This very easy appetizer that can be made in a matter of minutes is the first of a series of posts dedicated to my Foodbuzz 24×24 Christmas in July event. I love all finger food and this is no exception. I find it a lot of fun to make and it tastes delicious. The combination of the sweetness and softness of the baked prunes and the saltiness and crunchiness of the bacon is to die for and the sage leaf adds an extra kick to the morsel. The first time Clint and I had these, we were trying out restaurants for our wedding… we didn’t end up choosing the restaurant, but I have never forgotten the dish!
Cut the slices of bacon to a length so that you can wrap them completely around the prunes. Wrap one piece of bacon around a prune and add a sage leaf on the outside. Hold this together and close it by passing a toothpick through and through.
Bake them in a preheated fan forced oven at 180°C for 10 minutes or until the bacon is crunchy. Serve warm.

I have been growing a bunch of sage and haven’t had a chance to use it yet (I use more in the Fall in Winter) this is perfect!

I don’t think I’ve ever used sage for my cooking (maybe once). This is so easy to make! My mom used to tell me to eat prunes. I would rather eat it with bacon! 😉

My mother used to make this when somebody went to visit her. I was a little girl, I just remember how it smells…THANKS…!!!

Oh manu I love this! I have made bacon wrapped figs and dates but never prunes. I love how you added sage to the bites as well.

This sounds really interesting & I bet it tastes fabulous.. I have eaten a pork dish with a prune sauce, but never anything like this… must try! Thanks for sharing, Manu! 🙂

I can’t help but notice on Australian how different bacon looks! I love these. I have even have them with a paté filling, but I prefer them in their simple version better.

What I meant to write was how different bacon looks on Australian blogs.
Mai provate le prugne così, devo rimediare! Il contrasto dolce e salato mi piace tanto, grazie per questa bella idea!
The sage is so delicate and pretty! BUZZ buzz, my friend!
Olala, fantastic recipe my friend….yum:)
