A Date and a Pig

We were invited to a BBQ last weekend and was scheduled to bring fruit salad and at the last minute, as an extra, I threw together an appetizer. This appetizer was SO good, it was all gobbled up before we left the house!  What an easy appetizer this turned out to be. And as I've said before, everything's great wrapped up in bacon. 

If you like the taste combination of sweet with salt, you will LOVE this dish.  Only two ingredients needed: dates and bacon! 
Portuguese Roll Ups

Ingredients needed:
30 pitted dates
bacon

+ toothpicks

Slice the bacon in half, length-wise. Wrap a date with a bacon strip and secure with a toothpick. Place all on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes then turn and bake for another 8-10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

Enjoy!



Happy Wednesday!
