Bacon-Wrapped Dates

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. (Make sure your dates are pitted–you don’t want your guests breaking a tooth! If not pitted, make a small incision in each date and remove the pit.)
  3. Wrap each date in a half-slice of bacon and pin securely with a toothpick. Arrange on parchment paper on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake for about 15 minutes. Then turn dates over, baking for another 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Serve warm or at room temperature. Dates can be made a day in advance and refrigerated.
    Tips:

    Larger dates, about thumb-sized, work better.

    If desired, dates can be stuffed with a little something extra, like goat cheese, cream cheese, almonds or pecans!
