Cannot believe how time flies. Christmas is already over and 2013 approaches fast.
I would like to share this fantastic appetizer for your holiday party. Or any party in fact.
BACON WRAPPED DATES
For 6 persons, 15 min prep. Preheat oven 350 F, 15 to 20 min cooking time.
•12 bacon slices
•12 pitted dates
•12 thin slices of Parmesan cheese sized like the dates
•12 fresh basil leaves
Cut lengthwise the dates. Insert the Parmesan cheese. Wrapped with bacon. And secure with toothpick.
Place on a cooking sheet with a little bit of olive oil. Cooking time may vary depending on the oven.
Decorate with fresh basil and serve warm with a glass of wine!
Variations: you can omit the cheese if you want something less heavy. Or add instead a pecan, pine-nuts, or even a piece of fresh asparagus. Possibilities are endless!
