The easiest recipe I have found for this great sweet/salty treat! (So easy, it doesn't have to be a treat!)
- Microwave bacon for about 2 minutes, until partially cooked, but not browned.
- Wrap each date with a strip of bacon and secure with a wooden toothpick.
- Broil on low 3 minutes, turn dates, and continue broiling 3 to 4 minutes longer, or until browned.
- Drain on paper towel and serve warm.
