This is a salty/sweet treat! The idea to partially cook the bacon is bery helpful. Also, I cut my bacon smaller so it only wraps around the date once or else it doesn't get cooked all the way and I like my bacon crisp. If you don't want to use the broil because of potential splattering, you can fry these up in a pan. These are always a hit!
Love these. I make them a few ways. My most favorite is stuffing the date with blue cheese. When they are just finished being cooked drizzle Balsamic glaze over them. On my lord delicious.
We aren't normally crazy about dates on there own, however, this recipe was excellent. The flavours compliment very well and you can hardly tell they are dates wrapped inside anyhow... the morsles melt in your mouth.
These were really good, I stuffed the date with aged parmesan and sprinkled the bacon with brown sugar. The kids were eating them and had no idea they were eating dates.
these are the BEST. i used the precooked bacon, too. very easy. my eldest son called them "meat candy!"
Tasted like maple syrup and bacon....very tasty!
Quick, easy and definitely yummy! I made it even easier by using pre-cooked bacon. It is supple enough to wrap around the dates, but crisps up nicely under the broiler. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I have used both bacon (only wrap once) and now use pancetta. (sp?) It works really well because it is so thin and you still get the salt. It cooks so much quicker. I also put some blue cheese into the dates. This is the first appetizer to disappear!
One of our party app favorites. we don't nuke the bacon first though, we just wrap the dates and cook it through. Everyone loves these!
