Bacon-Wrapped Dates

This quick and easy recipe makes for a perfect appetizer or snack – and you won’t believe just how delicious they are!


16 oz package of bacon (we enjoy using thick-cut Hickory-smoked, but regular works just as well)

8 oz package of pitted dates



Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Slice the bacon strips into thirds, then wrap each piece around a date.  Secure the bacon in place with a toothpick and place in a baking dish.

Once all the dates are wrapped, place them in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until crispy.

Let cool for 5-7 minutes and enjoy!


Try these with a wine which will complement the sweetness of the date.  Try to avoid bold red wines.  Instead, try this with a semi-sweet white or maybe even a sparkling!
