Zingers From The Grain-Free Family Table, Carrie Vitt of Deliciously Organic
"If you’re going to make anything in this book, make this recipe. My mom, owner of The Festive Kitchen, in Dallas, Texas, is the creator of these little bites and sells thirty thousand pounds of them each holiday season. The apricot has a melty-sweet quality, there’s a small bite from the jalapeño, and it’s all wrapped in salty bacon. It’s truly the ultimate appetizer".


Egg Salad Bacon Cups~

20 dried apricots

20 jarred jalapeño slices

7 bacon slices, cut into thirds

20 strong toothpicks

 1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and adjust the rack to the middle position. Line a baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.

2. Using a paring knife, cut a slice horizontally down an apricot. Cut almost but not all the way through, so that it will open like a book. Place a jalapeño slice inside the apricot, wrap the apricot in a piece of the cut bacon, secure it with a toothpick, and place it on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

3. Bake for 10 minutes. Using a pair of tongs, flip the zingers and bake for 10 minutes more, or until the bacon is golden brown. Serve immediately. 

NOTE: You can make these ahead of time and freeze them, unbaked, in an airtight container. No need to thaw them—you can bake them straight from the freezer. Just increase the baking time to 25 to 30 minutes.
