Bacon wrapped dates might not be anything new to you, but until two days ago they were to me. After making this incredible delicious Ottolenghi salad with dates in it, I decided to make a lot more with this sticky little fruit. So for my new recipe video I made these bacon wrapped dates – I kept them as simple as possible, but of course you can fill the dates with cream cheese, other kinds of cheese or almonds – and I just pulled a banana-date cake out of the oven.

Bacon wrapped dates

Dates
Sliced bacon
Optional: you can fill the dates with cream cheese, other kinds of cheese or almonds

Preheat the oven to 200˚C/400˚F. Line a baking sheet with tin foil.

Slice the dates open and remove the pit. Wrap each date with a slice of bacon. Place the dates on the baking sheet.

Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake the dates for about 20 minutes. Leave them to cool for a couple of minutes after taking out of the oven, otherwise you’ll burn your mouth.

Enjoy!
