Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon preferably no sugar and from pastured pigs
  • 4 dates preferably organic

Instructions

  1. Cut the bacon slices in half.

  2. Fry up the slices all together in a large frypan, turning frequently until cooked but not too crispy.

  3. While the bacon is cooking, make a small cut in the middle of each date.

  4. Remove the pit from each date and discard.

  5. After the pits are removed, cut each date in half.

  6. When the bacon is cooked through but still slightly soft and not too crispy, remove from heat and let cool on a plate.

  7. Arrange the dates and bacon together on a plate. When ready to serve, each person can take a half date/bacon slice, wrap and eat immediately! I find this easier than wrapping the dates in bacon and using a toothpick to secure.

  8. Refrigerate leftovers.
