So simple and only two ingredients, these Bacon Wrapped Dates are parcels of deliciousness. They make a great canapé or nibble and are perfect with a glass of something bubbly!
Start by soaking 12 cocktail sticks in water. Set aside
Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan assisted, 200°C non fan)
Remove the pits from 12 medjool dates by cutting a small slit into the side
Lay 12 slices of streaky bacon on a chopping board. Place a date at the end of the bacon and roll it around the date
Secure the bacon with one of the soaked cocktail sticks and place on a baking tray or air fryer. Continue with the rest of the bacon and dates
Cook in the oven for 20 minutes, turning the dates after 10 minutes, until the bacon is crisp. Alternatively cook in the air fryer for 12 - 14 minutes.
Mix together 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar, 1 tbsp runny honey and ½ tsp light soy sauce. Serve with the bacon wrapped dates
