Dates in bacon

dates in bacon

Dates in bacon are the ideal Tapa or Mezze. They go perfectly with wine. Ideally you serve them right out of the oven when the bacon is crispy and the dates are still warm inside.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Baking time: 10 minutes

difficulty: very easy

Ingredients for 4 people:

    • 18 dates
    • 9 slices of bacon


Heat up the oven to 392 F.
Cut the dates up length wise with a small knife and remove the stone.
Cut the bacon slice into half’s. Wrap a piece of bacon around a date and secure it with a tooth pick. Place on a baking tray. Repeat until all dates are warped.
Bake for 10 minutes until the bacon is crisp. (Air and broiler)
