There’s a good chance you’ve tried a strange recipe or two in your life. And if you haven’t, you likely know someone who has. When it comes to food, just about anything goes. Sure, there are traditional recipes that everyone loves but sometimes, an individual comes up with what seems to be a hair-brained idea only for it to become a huge success.
A perfect example — bacon-wrapped Oreo cookies.
For this recipe, you don’t need many ingredients. This calls for just a few things:
• Oreo cookies
• Habanero dust (optional)
• Honey (optional)
• Ground cinnamon (optional)
As for the amount, it depends on how many bacon-wrapped Oreos you want to make and the specific way you cook them. So, if you want to make these as an appetizer for a large gathering, you could easily use anywhere from two to four boxes of cookies and one to two pounds of sliced bacon.
For bacon-wrapped Oreo’s, you can bake them in the oven until the bacon becomes crisp. Or you can cook them on the grill, again until the bacon is crispy. There are several options for making this particular recipe as outlined below.
If you want to bake the bacon-wrapped Oreo’s, start by lining a cookie sheet with foil. Then, lightly spray it with cooking oil. Don’t use much since the bacon will produce its own grease. To assemble, cut strips of bacon in half. Then, lay one piece on the sheet, place an Oreo in the center, and then wrap the ends around the cookie. You can use two strips of bacon that crisscross if wanted. Then, bake at 350-degrees.
If you prefer to make bacon-wrapped Oreo’s on your grill, set the flame to low-medium. Overall, the grilling method takes about an hour but you’ll want to check the cookies every 20 minutes. You’ll assemble the cookies on a flameproof cookie sheet. When using a charcoal grill, you can go with conventional briquettes or those with a hickory or mesquite flavor.
Plain bacon-wrapped Oreo’s
Some people prefer these plain, meaning you’d use nothing but the bacon and cookies. Even without adding any additional ingredients, these are delicious. Everyone will love them. Especially if you have smaller kids, this is probably the better option.
Enhanced bacon-wrapped Oreo’s
To kick things up a notch, you can modify the recipe. For this, you would wrap the Oreo’s, followed by sprinkling a little bit of the habanero powder on one side. Bake or grill them until the top side is crispy. Then, flip them over and drizzle on some honey along with a light dusting of cinnamon, cooking until all the bacon is crispy. The combination of heat and sweetness gives the standard recipe a nice boost in flavor.
As mentioned, there are all sorts of recipes for bacon-wrapped Oreo’s. But the two provided rank among the best. Of course, considering this is already an unconventional recipe, you can always experiment. Who knows, perhaps you’ll come up with an entirely different version that’s even better.
When the bacon-wrapped Oreo’s are done, they’ll look and smell incredible. The bacon should have a nice caramelized color. Allow these to cool. Just one bite and you’ll be hooked. Once served to guests, they’ll request these from you over and over.
