Bacon Wrapped Dates

January 6, 2020

These impressive (and deceptively easy to make!) appetizers are bursting with salty and sweet flavors. They are the perfect accompaniment to a glass of wine before dinner, or to add to a brunch or party spread.


Lay out a piece of bacon, and tightly roll up a pitted date inside.


Skewer the bundle with a toothpick to secure.


Place bacon-wrapped dates on a foil-lined baking sheet, and bake for 25-30 minutes in a 375°F until bacon is crisp.


Remove toothpicks and transfer to a serving platter. Serve warm or at room temperature.
