The bacon and dates in this simple yet elegant appetizer are wonderful together! My cousin whose husband was stationed in Portugal served these to rave reviews and so have I for 40 years! They are as easy as pie with only 2 ingredients and quick preparation time using round toothpicks.

These were delicious easy and extremely popular. Just an idea but next time I would bake them on a baking rack on a foil lined cookie sheet. That way any bacon grease will drip down rather than cook into the food and clean-up will be easier. These we so good and they went fast. Those who asked for the recipe were suprised at how simple they were to make. These will be regulars when I serve appetizers. Thanks! Read More

I've made a similar recipe for years for all family holiday gatherings. The only variance is that slice the date lengthwise and fill it with honey walnut cream cheese before wrapping with bacon. Don't overstuff and be sure to broil them slit side up. YUM!!! Read More
