Week 38: Bacon Wrapped Drumsticks

Bacon Wrapped Drumstick

Now that football season is in full swing expect many more man friendly and maybe not so healthy recipes. Don’t worry I’ll still post some healthy options, but in my mind come football season, Sunday has become the ultimate diet cheat day. We served these bacon wrapped drumsticks this past weekend during the 49ers game. Unfortunately the 49ers were not as successful as these drumsticks turned out to be. The chicken turned out unbelievably moist and the crispy bacon was the perfect compliment. What are some of your favorite recipes for Sunday Night Football?

Bacon Wrapped Drumstick

12 chicken drumsticks, skin removed
12 strips of thick cut bacon
Fresh Ground Pepper
Lemon Pepper Grill Seasoning


Line a large baking pan with foil and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

If you desire, start by removing the skin from the chicken drumsticks.   Next sprinkle seasoning, turn over, and season other side as well.

Starting at the end of the drumstick, pinch one end of the bacon strip around the bone, and tightly wrap it around the entire piece. Place it in the baking pan and repeat with remaining drumsticks.

Sprinkle any remaining seasoning and place in the oven and bake for 1 hour, until bacon is fully cooked.
