I know you're here because we're kindred spirits, and as a result, finding new things to wrap in bacon is a wonderful surprise. Take anything healthy — asparagus, jalapeños, cauliflower — and of course, with the addition of bacon, it goes from a pretty delicious thing (except cauliflower, am I crazy?) to AN AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS THING WAIT WHY ARE THEY ARE ALL GONE.
These bacon-wrapped dates are no exception. Sorry I'm not sorry that they're bite-sized, because you'll put about a dozen away without batting an eye. Or apologizing. Or thinking twice, as another goes into your mouth. Except then you'll realize that they're almost half gone and that will make you depressed. Until it dawns on you that they're super easy to make and you're on your way to making more, possibly even stuffing them with goat cheese this time. Yes, I said goat cheese.
Know how I found these babies? On a diet. That Whole 30 thing I did. I guess my month of madness of giving up basically the only things I actually eat — carbs and dairy and sugar — can be forgiven by this discovery of these beauties. You'll forgive me too once they're out of your oven and on their way to your mouth.
