Bacon dates are a great little appetizer and extremely easy to make. I love the organic dates from Four Apostles in Bermuda Dunes, California. The sweet smokiness of the bacon with the buttery richness of their ripe dates and the spice of the long pepper gives this finger food a great bit of balance in its flavors.
Ready in: 20 mins
- 16 dates, pitted
- 8 slices bacon (we prefer these with the Broadbent bacon), cut in half crosswise
- 4 whole Balinese long peppers, quartered lengthwise
Prep: 10 mins | Cook: 10 mins
1. Heat the broiler.
2. Stuff each date with a sliver of long pepper, then wrap with a half-slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place the bacon-wrapped dates on a baking sheet and broil 10 to 15 minutes or until the bacon is crisp, turning once. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn!
3. Remove from the oven once the bacon is done, let cool for a couple of minutes and serve while still warm.
