Bacon Wrapped Dates

Okay…these might be the best appetizer in the world. I mean, what isn’t better when wrapped in bacon?! My sister-in-law Carol (who is a fabulous cook) gave me this recipe…

  • 1 pound pitted dates
  • 2 pounds bacon
  • 1/2-1 link Spanish chorizo (There is a Spanish chorizo (pre-cooked) and a Mexican chorizo (raw). Be sure to get the Spanish version!)
  • brown sugar
  • toothpicks

Slice the chorizo into tiny pieces and stuff each date with the meat. Cut the bacon pieces into thirds and wrap each date with a bacon piece. Secure with a toothpick. Place the bacon wrapped dates on a jelly roll pan and cook at 350 until almost done (about 15-20 minutes). Remove from oven and sprinkle each date with a bit of brown sugar. Place back in the oven and cook for another 5-10 minutes. Aahhh…heavenly.
