Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Chorizo


One of my favorite restaurants named The Village Idiot stopped making one of my favorite items on their menu, bacon wrapped dates. Since I’ve eaten them a few times I decided to try and replicate the recipe. I think I may have come close! Serve with Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce.
 

Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Chorizo
 
Here are the Ingredients:
  • 16 pitted dates
  • 1/2 pound Spanish chorizo, (to fit into the dates)
  • 8 slices bacon, cut in half
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
 
Line a sheet tray with parchment paper. Make an incision on one side of each date and stuff with chorizo. Squeeze the date shut. 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 bake another 6 minutes. Remove the dates from the oven and and drizzle with the maple syrup. Return the dates to the oven and bake another 2 minutes. Serve with Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce (see recipe).
