Warm Date Wraps with Bacon & Endive January 17, 2012

APPETIZER: Warm Roasted Dates Wrapped in Lean Turkey Bacon and Served on Fresh Endive Leaves. Serving size 2-3 wraps.

Warm Dates Wraps
with Turkey Bacon & Endive Leaves

Inspired by my favorite tapas dish at Oliva this weekend. This triad of flavors complement each other perfectly: sweet dates, savory bacon, and bitter endive. This dish is easy to make and only takes about 20 minutes to prepare. Enjoy as an appetizer or a part of your meal. Pairs well with garlic roasted brussels sprouts.

Serves 4

-16 fresh dates
-8 uncured 97% fat-free turkey bacon
– 2 large endives (16 large fresh endive leaves)


1) Preheat oven to 400°F. Make a slit in dates and remove pits. Wrap each date in 1/2 slice of lean nitrate-free turkey bacon.

2) Bake at 400°F for 15-20 minutes. Serve hot on fresh endive leaves. Enjoy 2-3 wraps per person. Each wrap is approximately 70 calories. A serving of 2 wraps is approximately 140 calories.
