Bacon-Wrapped Dates

Bacon-Wrapped Dates

Makes 25-30.

Source: YumSugar

16-oz. package of bacon (regular thickness-not thick cut), cut into thirds
8-oz. package of pitted dates

Preheat the oven to 350°. Position oven rack in the center of the oven. Cover a cookie sheet with tin foil.

Wrap a piece of bacon around a date. Make sure the bacon seam is placed facing downwards on the cookie sheet. Press firmly on the bacon wrapped date, so it is less likely to unravel. Repeat until all of the dates are wrapped in bacon.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until crisp. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.  Serve with toothpicks.


  1. I love these! My original recipe calls for stuffing the date with goat cheese - very good, but time consuming. Thanks for reminding me of these :)

  2. Thanks, Kathy! A good friend of mine makes her with goat cheese and they are delicious! I typically get a little lazy, but should make myself stuff them next time... so good!
