Although my mum would always make dates with bacon at Christmas, they are great for nibbles any time of the year so I love making them when we have friends coming round.
Difficulty: Very easy
- 7 bacon slices
- 24 pitted dates
Wrap one piece of bacon around each date, securing it with a cocktail stick. Depending on the size of the dates, you might have to split the slice of bacon vertically in two. If this is the case, one slice of bacon would be perfect to wrap two dates.
