Bacon-Wrapped Dates



  • 16-ounce package of bacon (not thick cut), cut into thirds
  • 8-ounce package of pitted dates



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Put the oven rack in the center of the oven.
  3. Cover a cookie sheet with tin foil.
  4. Wrap a piece of bacon around a date. Make sure the bacon seam is placed facing down on the cookie sheet. Press firmly on the wrapped date, so it is less likely to unravel.
  5. Repeat until all of the dates are wrapped in bacon.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes until crisp.
  7. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.
