I recently ran across this recipe from Honest Cooking and instantly fell in love with it. I tried tweaking it here and there, such as toasting the bread but honestly nothing was better than the original.
It is such a beautiful appetizer that will be sure to impress your friends and family. On top of that it is super easy to make.
Danish apple pork
- 8 Thick slices of bacon
- 2 Apples, cored and diced (I used red apples but use what your prefer)
- 1/2 Tablespoon of sugar
- 1/2 Tablespoon of brown sugar
- 1/2 Tablespoon butter
- 1 Tablespoon water
- 4 Slices of dark rye bread
- Chives for garnishing
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Place the slices of bacon on an oven rack for about 20 minutes or until crispy golden. Position a pan underneath with a little water in it to gather up any dripping fat. Remove and let drip off on a paper towel.
In a saucepan, melt the butter and then add half the sugar. Let the sugar melt, and then add the apples and the water. Simmer gently for 2 minutes, and then add the rest of the sugar. Let simmer under a lid for 10 minutes. Remove and let cool.
Serve the bacon on rye bread and top with the apples. Garnish with chives.
