Bacon-Wrapped Hearts of Palm

This recipe is three ingredients and so easy it's slightly silly. But if you've never tasted crispy bacon encrusting a sweet and briny canned hearts of palm tube, you're in for a serious revelation. I encourage you to double this recipe as your guests are likely to freak out and inhale the whole platter.Originally published on Food & Wine

Ingredients

  • 5 strips of bacon sliced in half lengthwise
  • 5 whole hearts of palm from one 15-ounce can, sliced in half lengthwise
  • 1/3 cup basic basil pesto

Instructions

  1. 1.Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Wrap each heart of palm with a strip of bacon. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, arrange the bacon-wrapped palm tubes seam-side down so they don’t unravel.
  3. Bake until the bacon is browned on the bottom, about 20 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and rotate the hearts of palm. Return to the oven for another 10 minutes, until the fat is completely rendered and the bacon is crispy.
  4. Serve warm alongside the pesto for dipping.
