Bacon-Wrapped Squash Bites
This easy appetizer is proof that bacon makes anything taste better.
Game plan: The squash can be wrapped in bacon, covered, and stored in the
refrigerator up to 2 hours ahead.
12 ounces of peeled, seeded, large-dice squash (about 2 1/2 squash)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons olive oil
freshly ground black pepper to taste
4 (1-ounce) pieces of bacon
Heat the oven to 450°F and arrange a rack in the upper third. In a large
bowl, toss the squash, salt, olive oil, and black pepper until evenly
combined. Slice pieces of bacon in half lengthwise. Place the bacon strips
on a flat surface and roll a piece of squash in each strip until the bacon
is wrapped around the squash like a belt (you want it to overlap slightly).
Cut the bacon, place the squash bite, seam side down, on a baking sheet,
and repeat to wrap all of the squash (you should have about 40 bites).
Roast until the squash is knife tender and the bacon is crisped, about 15
to 20 minutes.
