  • 1 lb medjool dates (the big ones!)
  • ½ cup brandy
  • 1 lb regular cut bacon


  • Slice open the dates and remove the pit from each date. Place in a bowl and pour brandy over the top. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 2 hours, or up to 24 hours. 
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Cover a baking sheet with rimmed edges with foil. Place a wire rack on top. 
  • Cut the bacon strips in half horizontally. Place a bacon strip on a flat surface. Place a date on the end and roll the bacon around the dates. Use a toothpick to secure the bacon. Place on the wire rack and repeat with remaining dates and bacon. 
  • Bake for 25–30 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp. Let cool slightly before removing from the tray. Serve warm or at room temperature.
