Bacon Wrapped Dates
Like you need a reason to improve upon just plain bacon! These bacon wrapped dates helps you to savor that bacon-deliciousness just a little longer.
1/2 lb. bacon

Preheat oven to 425 F. Prepare baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
Cut bacon into thirds. Wrap each date with a 1/3 slice bacon, overlapping and securing with a toothpick. Place bacon wrapped dates on baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until bacon is done. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.
