Bacon and Medjool Dates

Thursday, February 10, 2011 Review by judywrites


  • 6  pieces thin-sliced bacon
  • 18  pitted Medjool dates


1. Cut bacon slices crosswise into about 4-inch lengths. Wrap a piece snugly around each date, overlapping ends.

2. Set dates, seam sides down, in a 10- to 12-inch nonstick frying pan over medium heat (you may have to fry dates in batches). Turn dates occasionally until bacon is browned and crisp on all sides, 6 to 8 minutes total. Transfer dates to paper towels to drain; blot dry. Serve warm or cool.

You can find Medjool dates at many gourmet grocery stores and warehouse clubs. This is a quick recipe to put together – cook and prep – maybe 25 minutes. You can make this recipe ahead and let them cool. Cover tightly and store at room temp.

Thanks Sunset Magazine and All Recipes for this great snack idea!
