It is hosting season. There is almost nothing better than walking into a party and finding a tray of Bacon Wrapped Dates.
As a host, the best part about serving Bacon Wrapped Dates is how easy it is to do. You are literally taking a piece of bacon and wrapping it around a date. It doesn’t get easier than that. Except, it does. You can even make them ahead.
If you are going to be short on time, you can make this a day or two ahead, and store them in the fridge. You can reheat them in the oven before you serve. Your guests will be happy, you will be happy. It’s an all around win.
