Everything’s better with bacon, and that goes for your Holiday appetizers. This unique and easy to make BBQ Bacon Bites recipe will become a tradition in no time.


1 lb Pork Belly or slab bacon, diced into 1” cubes

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 Tbsp ground fennel

2 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper


Fold a 12" x 36" piece of aluminum foil in half and crimp the edges so there is a rim. Using a fork, poke holes in the bottom of the foil. This way some of the bacon fat will be rendered out and the bacon bites will crisp.

When ready to cook, set the temperature to 350°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, ground fennel, salt, and black pepper. Stir to combine.

Place the diced pork belly into the mixture and toss until well-coated. Transfer the pork pieces to the foil.

Place on the grill and bake until the pieces are crispy, glazed, and bubbly, about 20-30 minutes. Enjoy!

*Cook times will vary depending on set and ambient temperatures.
