NOT Rumake

By Arlene Marshall (TwinLakesChef) on May 15, 2010

Thinking back to the 60’s & 70’s Rumaki was being served everywhere. I’m a liver-phobe, so we just had bacon wrapped around water chestnuts. Now it seemed like it could be re-invented; all you needed was bacon, something crunchy to replace the water chestnut and one other ingredient.

Fry the bacon using your preferred method but be sure to undercook it so it is still flexible.

Slice each dried apricot in half.  Wrap that half around a whole almond.

You'll have to squish it around with your fingers & some will try to pop back open. Yes, those are toothpicks soaking in water.

You are going to wrap a piece of bacon around the apricot and secure with toothpick.  Place in a baking dish or on a cookie sheet.

 What you do with them at this point will affect the oven temperature you will need to finish them off.  They can be frozen or refrigerated until you need them.  Presuming we are going to use them right away, preheat the oven around 425 to 450 degrees F.  At 450 degrees with our oven, 10 minutes is all that is needed to finish browning the bacon & heating through. 2010-04-05/TwinLakesChef/5cadab
