Bacon Wrapped Dates


Not much explaining to do here. This easy recipe is straight forward and damn good tasting. Sweet and savory collide for an unusually great pairing of bacon and dates. As the dates heat up they ooze with caramel flavor. While the bacon crisps up, it oozes with salty-smokey flavor. These make for a perfect movie snack, appetizer, or eat off amongst crossfitting Paleo friends…. Okay now, go make some!

  • Soft Medjool Dates, pitted
  • 1/2 a strip of bacon per date
