Bacon Wrapped Dates

This is one of my favorite things to make ever. Dates are delicious and sweet, and bacon... well, y'all know how I feel about bacon. It should be its own damn food group.


You'll need:

1 package of bacon
A big bag of whole pitted dates

Preheat the oven to 350, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper - make sure it's a baking sheet that has raised edges, and not a flat one like your pizza pans, because the bacon grease is going to run off when it bakes, and you don't want that all over your oven, catching on fire and stuff.

Slice the bacon strips in half longways (it helps to use a pizza cutter), so you have a long skinny piece of bacon. Wrap each bacon strip around a date, and place it on the baking sheet. Bake for about 30 - 40 minutes, or until the bacon is nice and crisp. Cool for a few minutes before nomming on these, because biting into a searing hot date can ruin your whole day. Once they've cooled off, dig in! This makes a great side dish, or just a snack for the middle of the night when you need a bacon fix.
