1. Cut bacon slices crosswise into about 4-inch lengths. Wrap a piece snugly around each date, overlapping ends.
2. Set dates, seam sides down, in a 10- to 12-inch nonstick frying pan over medium heat (you may have to fry dates in batches). Turn dates occasionally until bacon is browned and crisp on all sides, 6 to 8 minutes total. Transfer dates to paper towels to drain; blot dry. Serve warm or cool.
Note: Nutritional analysis is per date.
You can make these dates up to 6 hours ahead; let cool, then cover and store at room temperature.
