Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 15 Medjool pitted dates
  • 1 pound Spanish chorizo, cut into 15 blocks (to fit into the dates)
  • 5 slices bacon, cut into thirds
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a sheet tray with silicone baking mat or parchment.

  • Make an incision on one side of each date and insert a block of chorizo. Squeeze the date shut in your hand to secure. Wrap each date with a bacon strip and secure with a toothpick. Place all the dates on the prepared sheet tray. Roast the dates in the oven until the bacon on top is starting to crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. Turn the dates over and repeat the process.

  • Remove the dates from the oven and brush both sides with the maple syrup. Return the dates to the oven until the dates are really crackly and sticky, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve hot.
