Dates and plums wrapped in bacon – the perfect sweet and salty snack for your next gathering with friends or family. So good!



some olive oil for frying
12 dried dates
12 dried plums (prunes)
12 bacon strips
2 tbsp. honey


1. Cut the bacon strips in half and wrap each date/prune with the bacon pieces. Set aside.

2. Add some olive oil to a frying pan and heat up. Place the wrapped dates/prunes inside the frying pan, with the side where the bacon is overlapping/closing around the dried fruits facing down – this should help keep the bacon in place and not unraveling while frying. If you want to be on the safe side, you can help yourself with some toothpicks. Fry the wrapped dates/prunes from all sides until nicely browned. The fat from the bacon should have almost disappeared.

3. Reduce the heat, add the honey, and carefully mix everything. Allow the dates/plums to sizzle for another 1-2 minutes, then transfer them to a bowl and serve while still warm.


¡Buen provecho!
