Smoky, salty bacon enrobes a sweet, earthy date for a flavor combination that is irresistible. Serve hot from the microwave. A good addition to a tapas (small plates) dinner with Ham, Gorgonzola and Pear Crostini and White Bean Tapenade.
- 12 slices bacon
- 24 pitted dates
- Cut each bacon slice in half crosswise. Place bacon on paper toweling on a microwave-safe plate; cover with another paper towel. Microwave on high 4 minutes. Roll up each date in a piece of bacon, place bacon-wrapped dates on clean toweling on microwave-safe plate; cover with another paper towel. Microwave on high 2 minutes, until bacon is crisp. Serve hot.
