Devilishly Delicious Bacon and Cherry Roll-Ups

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Noo8820

I have very fond memories of this recipe from my early childhood. Anytime my mother had friends over for drinks, or threw a party she would make these. I would always be dispatched to a quiet corner with a plate full of goodies, including loads of these! Now I make them for parties, or drink snacks, and everybody loves them. I make trays of these, and the amount listed below is quite small, so be prepared to make more! They are so simple but oh so effective! I tend to use streaky bacon for the fat content, but back bacon works fine too. Try them-you won't regret it!

We gave this recipe 4 stars for flavor, but added another for uniqueness. While I was making them, DH said it sounded yucky, but then I reminded him how we put cherries and pineapples on ham when we bake it. What is ham? Bacon! So, not only did I wrap (marachino) cherries in bacon, but also did it with some pineapple chunks and Wow, were they both delicious! The cherry ones were a bit on the sweet side, so we were happy that we didn't use glace (candied) cherries. The pineapple ones packed a nice flavor. Even DH liked these appetizers. Thanks for a creative and easy recipe. :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with non stick spray.
  2. Gently run a knife along each rasher of bacon to stretch it slightly, then cut it in half widthways.
  3. Roll a cherry in each piece of bacon.
  4. Place on baking tray and bake in a moderate oven until bacon is cooked and the fat is crisping up--you can grill these too, but be careful they don't burn.
