Bacon wrapped dates is a great BBQ appetizer for the end of summer or as a way to start your fall at a picnic in the park. They are so addicting, and your guests will love munching on these plump, sugary, and salty bite-sized babies.
Be sure to allow time to cool because they are molten hot straight from the oven!
1 12 oz package of bacon (make sure not to purchase thick bacon slices)
1 package of medjool dates from Trader Joes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. I cover my cookie sheet with parchment paper, but feel to cover with aluminum foil. Meanwhile, wrap the slices of bacon around the date. If needed to hold bacon onto the date, place a toothpick through the center. Make sure to place the wrapped date seam facing down on baking sheet. Repeat until all the dates are wrapped in the bacon. Bake for about 25 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Let cool for about 10 minutes before serving! Enjoy!
