Artichokes Wrapped In Bacon

Are there any foods that can’t be improved by wrapping them in bacon? 

Potatoes wrapped in bacon, avocados wrapped in bacon. There are even shot glasses made from bacon!

Now you can even treat your palate to artichokes wrapped in bacon. The artichoke hearts have a really savoury flavour, and when roasted, it makes that flavour so much earthier, while the bacon adds a smoky saltiness.


  • 8 artichoke hearts, from a can
  • 6-8 rashers of streaky bacon
  • 8 small sprigs of rosemary, washed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. Drain the can of artichoke hearts and place them on a board, patting them dry with kitchen paper or a clean towel. 
  2. Have a pile of 8 cocktail sticks handy and then take the bacon and wrap it around the outside of the artichoke heart. You might not need the whole rasher of bacon, depending on how long the slices are, in which case cut the bacon off and use to wrap around the next one. Secure each bacon-wrapped artichoke heart with a cocktail stick, to stop it unravelling in the oven. Poke a rosemary sprig in the centre of each artichoke heart and drizzle with the olive oil.
