Prunes Wrapped in Bacon

Serves 4

12 each strips of bacon, uncooked

12 each prunes, dried and pitted

12 each toothpicks

Lay six pieces of bacon onto a sheet pan or cutting board. Place one prune at the end of each strip. Roll the bacon around the prune, pulling gently to make sure the bacon fits tightly. Secure the pork with a toothpick. Repeat the steps to prepare the remaining six prunes. Heat a saute pan over medium-high heat, and place the prunes into the pan. When the prunes are ready to be flipped, the bacon will release itself from the pan. Gently swirl the pan throughout the process, allowing the bacon fat to distribute evenly. When the bacon is golden on all sides, remove the prunes and place onto paper towels. Serve immediately.
