Easiest Appetizer Ever: Bacon Wrapped Dates

Let's face it, anything wrapped in bacon is a crowd pleaser. :) And, in honor of Super Bowl Sunday, I wanted to share with ya'll my favorite appetizer recipe: Bacon Wrapped Dates. These are ALWAYS a hit - I promise! The best part about them (other than the bacon)!? You only have to buy two ingredients!

1 package of bacon (I use turkey bacon!)
1 package of pitted dates

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut each piece of bacon in half. Wrap each date with a half slice of bacon. Secure bacon with a toothpick & place on cookie sheet. Bake for approximately 20 minutes, until bacon is slightly crispy. Serve immediately with ketchup, BBQ sauce, & mustard! **If you are feeling adventurous, you can stuff the dates (prior to baking) with blue cheese - YUM!

I don't know if I've ever eaten a date---is that weird, ha?! But I must say, those look delicious. I'll have to give them a try!
