Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 8 slices bacon cut in half
  • 1 apples cored and sliced – I prefer Gala Empire or Cortland
  • ¼ cup Clyde Mays Whiskey or whiskey of your choice
  • 1 tablespoon maple sugar or brown sugar
  • 2 oz thick Cheddar cheese slices sharp cheddar is best
  • 1 tsp Fresh Thyme
  • Fresh cracked black pepper

Instructions

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with foil and set one aside.
  2. Cook the bacon, in the oven, on one of the prepared baking sheets until just about crispy (10-15 min). You want to under cook them a bit because they'll continue to cook with the apples. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss together the apples, whiskey, sugar and thyme.
  4. Place a slice of cheese on top of a slice of apple and then wrap in a half slice of bacon. Hold in place with a toothpick. Place on prepared baking sheet.

  5. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes or until the bacon crisps and the cheese melts. Transfer to a platter, top with fresh cracked pepper, and try not to eat them all yourself.
