This is the quin­tes­sen­tial “Nobody eats just one” recipe: Be care­ful you don’t end up spend­ing all your mon­ey just to make more.

  • Ingre­di­ents:
  • 20 large pit­ted dates
  • 10 slices of thick-cut bacon
  • Bam­boo knot­ted cock­tail picks
  • OPTIONAL: Tooth­picks will work if you don’t have any cock­tail picks, but avoid those flim­sy flat toothpicks—they’ll break on you. Bam­boo skew­ers work okay too; just put four or five bacon date rolls on each one.

Pre­heat oven to 350°.

Cut each slice of bacon in half. Roll a date up in each bacon slice and put a cock­tail pick through each roll.

Put the bacon date rolls on a cool­ing rack or broil­er rack so they won’t be sit­ting in a pud­dle of grease.

Bake at 350° for 30–35 minutes.

Bacon Like a BOSS!
