  • Cut the bacon slices in half.
  • Fry up the slices all together in a large frypan, turning frequently until cooked but not too crispy.
  • While the bacon is cooking, make a small cut in the middle of each date.
  • Remove the pit from each date and discard.
  • After the pits are removed, cut each date in half.
  • When the bacon is cooked through but still slightly soft and not too crispy, remove from heat and let cool on a plate.
  • 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! (This may be easier than wrapping the dates in bacon and using a toothpick to secure)
  • Refrigerate leftovers.

Servings:  8
