What a silly recipe, 18 bacon wrapped dates! I make these, with a pecan half tucked inside, for more than just myself. My God I could eat these in my sleep!!!
Tried this because prep seemed easy enough.But, the recipe should emphasize strongly that a non-stick frying pan is required. I wasted $5 worth of dates creating a bacon-date mess, with burned highlights. Dates make the bacon stick to the pan.
This thing is a flavor explosion. I stuff each date with an almond then wrap in bacon and fry it up. sooooooo good.
This an old standby for me. I like to tuck a pecan half inside the date before I wrap it in bacon. The pecan gets toasted and smoky and adds a bit of complexity to an already great taste.
This is a crowd pleaser and usually the first to go at parties.. I add an almond inside.. the little bite of crunch adds some nice texture. Also, smokey flavour bacon works really well with this
Great for an appetizer party! I have made this same recipe many times without the cream cheese (because I cannot eat cheese) and it has also received rave reviews. One tip, don't try it in the microwave. The dates get too hot and split open before the bacon is done.
The only reason why I would rate this recipe low is because they forgot a key ingredient...Cream Cheese. The cream cheese adds a sour complexity to compliment the sweet and salty. I have made this appetizer dozens and dozens of times to rave reviews. Be sure to make plenty as left-overs are unheard of!
