Dates Wrapped in Bacon

Guests on a diet won’t approve, but the cookbook 1080 Recipe’s description of Dates Wrapped in Bacon was amazing enough for me to risk it recently. Crispy and savory on the outside, soft and sweet on the inside, this was delicious and quick to make. The directions? Wrap dates in bacon and fry in peanut oil.

Inherent in those directions are buying dates instead of figs, like I did. It worked, although I think the figs were a bit too big for bite-sized treats. Oopla! Next time: actual dates.

No harm done. They were eaten up before they could get cold.
