This is my version of a recipe I recently found in the Costco Connection magazine.
I used thick-cut bacon, so I cut each piece in half lengthwise and again width-wise. Basically, I got 4 little pieces of bacon from 1 slice. I slightly cooked the bacon before wrapping the dates.
- Medjool Dates
- Thick-cut Bacon
- Havarti Cheese
- Green Onions
I bought a 12-ounce package of Medjool Dates but I only used about ⅓ of the package since only my husband and myself were trying them. I will base my ingredients on what I used but this recipe can easily be double, tripled, etc...
