Canadian Red, White & Bacon Skewers (And a Watermelon Beaver)

This is probably the most simple Canada Day appetizer you will ever make.
You can have this made in no time at all and it certainly makes a big impact on the table. has bacon.!
Sue and I decided to also share our watermelon carving of a beaver. It is surprising simple to do. You can find a how-to video for step-by-step instructions here - Canadian Living
If you want something healthy and REALLY cool to impress your kids, you should totally make this beaver. is the recipe for our super easy, super Canadian looking appetizers. 

Canadian Red, White & Bacon Skewers

cherry tomatoes
mini bocconcini
bacon, cooked & cut into 1 inch pieces

Thread a tiny skewer, or long toothpick, with a tomato, piece of bacon, bocconcini, bacon, tomato.
On the next skewer, thread a bocconcini, bacon, tomato, bacon and end with bocconcini. 
Alternate the different skewers on a serving platter.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Just like that.
How about another photo of the watermelon beaver?

There he is on his cookie sheet while we were still working on him. We set him on a nice, white platter to show him off better. (As in the photo at the top)
The only tool you will really need to make him is a melon baller. Once you have that, you are good to go.
Sue and I have one more treat to share that would work well for Canada Day to wrap up our Canada Day recipes week.  Be sure to check back soon!
