Bacon Wrapped Medjool Dates

Submitted by: CARADAWN

Introduction

This is a great game day food! I love the mix of sweetness from the dates, salt from the bacon and crunch from the nuts.

You can use any nuts for this recipe. I used pecans and the original recipe called for cashew. I made half of the recipe with nuts and half without the first time and the dates with nuts were a lot better. The nutrition information includes the full 6oz of nuts.

Ingredients

    1 lb Dates
    1 lb sliced organic bacon
    6 oz minced nuts (optional)

Directions

Preheat the oven to broil.

Split one side of Medjool date lengthwise and remove pit.

Stuff with one teaspoon minced nuts. (Optional)

Place under oven broiler.

Turn once to ensure even cooking and drain well (about 3 minutes per side worked well in our oven). Serve warm / immediately.
