Bacon Wrapped Dates

Share it Please
This is probably the best snack you will ever have.

Not to mention the easiest.

If you do a Google search on "bacon wrapped dates" all sorts of links will come up. Most of them require you to put the dates and bacon in the oven, but they taste great even if you don't. When I have more time I think I'll try it, though.

Now that I've got the basic recipe down, I can't wait to experiment with different ingredients! My mind is whirling with all sorts of ideas. You could dress this recipe up by stuffing the dates with nuts or maybe even chocolate but this recipe is really good as is. If you can call it a recipe. It's so simple!

Also, this really isn't a vegan or vegetarian recipe. You could try it with a vegetarian bacon alternative, but I doubt the taste would be the same. By all means, try it, though! And please report back if you do. I'm sure my other vegan readers would love to know. :)

*This recipe is really only for one person. Normally, a half a piece of bacon wraps nicely around one date so if serving for a large crowd I would use maybe 30-40 pieces of bacon, depending on how many people you will be serving.

2 pieces of bacon
4 dates, pitted
optional: chocolate, almond butter, pistachios, almonds, etc.

1. If bacon is pre-cooked, but cold or frozen reheat in the microwave. If you bacon isn't cooked, cook some!
2. Wrap each date in half a piece of bacon, using a toothpick to hold it together, and micro-wave for about 10 seconds or until date is soft.
3. That's it! You're done! Enjoy you're amazingly delicious snack. :)

Inquiry of the Day:

Do you have any favorite snacks that are super easy?

I love potato chips and it doesn't get any easier than reaching in a bag for some. ;) But I try to keep my potato chip consumption to a minimum and go for healthier snacks with more fat and protein.


  1. I'm vegan, but I have a bacon crazy friend (she even has bacon patterened socks!)who would love this!!!:)
    My favorite easy snack is probably frozen bananas!XD

    1. Frozen bananas... Oh, I'm drooling. I bet they'd be even better covered in peanut butter or chocolate. ;)
