This is a favorite at any Venezuelan get-together from Maracaibo. My mom used to make these Ojos de Buey for almost every party at our home. It is so easy to make that your kids can help.

Don't be afraid of the prunes! While I'm not a prune fan on an everyday basis, these are amazing! I was eating them like candy at my sister's birthday before she told me what they were. Luckily, as many as I ate, they didn't have the, umm, effect, that prunes are known for. The salty bacon and sweet prune are a perfect combo!

So fabulously easy to make, and everyone absolutely loves them. A real crowd pleaser. I used toothpicks. Don't change a thing!

These are delicious, and a favorite appetizer with my family for all events!! I've been making them for the last 2 1/2 years ever since I had them in Nicaragua and had to have the recipe then and there! They are so simple...it's hard to believe they'd be so good. Make sure you halve the bacon as a whole strip is too much (it doesn't cook up nice and crisp with a whole piece-- I can't really handle "slimy" bacon!). While prunes aren't bad on their own, everything's better wrapped in bacon!
