Turkey Bacon Wrapped Dates

Ingredients

    • medium sized dates about 1 1/2 inches long
    • turkey bacon

Cooking Instructions

  1. 1Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

  2. 2Cut each turkey bacon strip into fourths. Slice once vertically and once horizontally. This gives you bacon that will wrap perfectly around your dates and cook quickly. (Too much bacon will greatly increase baking time.)

  3. 3Wrap the cut turkey bacon around your dates. Place each wrapped date on a baking sheet. I like to line my baking sheet with a silicone baking mat to minimize mess and sticking but it's not necessary.

  4. 4Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Bacon should have some browning at the edges and be cooked through.

  5. 5Remove from the oven and add a toothpick to the top of each. Serve immediately or store in a sealed container until you're ready to enjoy. (They'll still be delicious the next day!)
