OK, I confess. I've wrapped a lot of things in bacon in my time! From meatballs to cherry peppers to pork tenderloin, bacon imparts a fantastic flavor and texture. 

What I particularly love about this dish is that your guests can completely see what they're getting. They know it's going to be good! They're great served for game day, parties, or pretty much any gathering. And the recipe is super easy to double or treble, too!

How to Make Bacon-Wrapped Zucchini

Cut the zucchini lengthwise into quarters.

Season generously with black pepper, then wrap each one in a slice of bacon, and place it on a non-stick baking sheet.

Roast in a preheated oven for around 30 minutes or until the bacon is cooked through and crispy.

Meanwhile, make the dip by combining sour cream, chopped green onions, and black pepper. For a dairy free option you could use barbecue sauce or anything else you fancy!

Let the bacon zucchini cool for five minutes before serving (you might also like to drain them on paper towels) – the naturally high water content in the zucchini can be pretty hot!

I really love how the soft zucchini has slightly charred edges, and is infused with the bacon! The creamy dip is just perfect with it!
