Help....need dairy free hor d'oeuvre or app. with bacon

I am responsible for making an hor d'oeuvre / appetizer for a friend’s b-day party and she is lactose intolerant and loves bacon.

Any ideas?

Please and thank you!

  1. These are tasty --Sprinkle bacon (1/2 slices) with brown sugar, wrap around around baby corn and put under broiler 'til crisp.

      another version - bacon wrapped waterchestnuts with brown sugar sprinkled in each fold as the waterchestnut is rolled up. bake them till crisp.

    2. Great bacon, brown sugar, cracked black pepper... tied into knots. Lots of great sweet bacon stuff out there right now. There is a bacon jam that might be good on toast points.

      1. Bacon wrapped figs are pretty tasty.

          This sounds like an odd mix but they are SOOOO tasty.

          date stuffed with an olive wrapped with bacon - bake in 400 oven until bacon is crispy.

          Sweet, salty, bacony - yum

            Tons of variations on bacon wrapped dates. Haven't tried one yet that wasn't tasty. You can put an almond in the middle, add cayenne, etc, etc.

        2. Second and third the dates. Stuff with gorgonzola or whatever cheese you like and wrap with bacon. Bacon wrapped scallops are good too.

            Stuffing with cheese kinda defeats the whole "dairy free" aspect, though. Better to stick with almonds, garlic, etc.

          2. Wrap an uncooked shrimp with a piece (or half depending on size of shrimp and bacon) of bacon. Skewer and repeat to fill skewer. Brush with good bbq sauce and grill or broil. Also awesome with scallops.

              china I do the same with shrimp but I put a sliced jalipino (mount. olive or other jared kind ) along the vien line then wrap w/ bacon then skewer and brush with favorite BBQ sauce. I either grill or broil turning once till bacon is cooked. once bacon is cooked shrimp should be done. only brush once with BBQ sauce before i grill or broil

                If the bacon is not really thin, pre-cook it a bit first. It will still be flexible enough, to wrap and skewer, but it will finish cooking when the seafood does. It does make a big difference.
