    Nice and easy. I didn't even use toothpick and placed seam side down for cooking which sealed the edge nicely.

    Not only for the single ladies, this one's a real keeper. They are quick and easy to prepare and no one believed that I actually made them. People couldn't figure out what the other ingredient was besides the bacon. It was the first date with a pig that I actually enjoyed.

    My mom made these for a holiday party and everyone raved about them. She hates cooking but figured with only 2 ingredients she could handle this one. She was right... they were delicious.

    INCREDIBLY good! I didn't have enough bacon, so I made the mistake of slicing the bacon in half lengthwise and using 1/4 piece on each date. Not a good idea. A full 1/2 is necessary to cover the date and allow for shrinkage.**Next time I may precook the bacon slightly, wrap it around the date and continue baking until crisp. This will speed up the baking time. Thanks cfletcher! Made for Tgiving.
