Recipe Theme
Central Alabama EC
1 jar of sweet watermelon rind pickles (Drain and set juice aside)
8 ounces of hickory smoked breakfast bacon
1 package of toothpicks
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drain the pickled watermelon rinds, and cut into bite size chucks.  Cut bacon slices in half. Wrap one slice of bacon around each piece of pickled watermelon rind.  Push toothpick through each piece to secure the bacon. Place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and bake for 25 minutes or until crispy.  Drizzle the drained juice over each piece and place back in the oven for 5 more minutes. Let cool for several minutes before serving, as it will be extremely hot.  This appetizer is excellent for any kind of party or served at a picnic.
