Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano Bacon Wrapped Dates Recipe

- 36 whole Dates
- 1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar
- 1/4 cup Maple Syrup
- Pinch Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Line a baking sheet with foil.
- Arrange bacon slices on top of the foil.
- Place sheet in the oven. Cook until bacon is 75% cooked (about 12 to 14 minutes).

- Keep the oven on at the same temperature.
- When cooled, cut bacon strips in 1/2.
- Wrap each date with a 1/2 slice of bacon. Secure with a toothpick.
- Place wrapped dates in an oven safe dish or pan (Choose one big and deep enough to include the dates and 3/4 cup sauce you will prepare next.)
- Pour balsamic vinegar and maple syrup in a sauce pan. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil.
- Pour sauce over the wrapped dates.
- Place in hot oven and bake for 3 to 4 minutes.
- Remove from the oven. Using tongs, carefully place the wrapped dates on a serving dish or in a cast iron skillet (Choose one deep enough to hold the sauce you will pour over the dates next.)
- Pour sauce from the baking dish over the wrapped dates.
- Serve immediately.
