Well, this dish turned out to be the highlight at the breakfast table and it finished in no time. I have my dear friend Sandy to thank for teaching me to make this. It is so easy to make and the results so rewarding - you have to try it. I am going to do this for my family reunion dinner this Chinese New Year.
One date for each bacon streak - that's all!
No salt, no pepper, no oil, nothing else.
3-4 dates for each guest
1. Remove seeds from dates while pre-heating oven to 180C
2. Wrap each date with one bacon streak
3. Place on baking tray or use aluminium foil to minimise cleaning up
4. Bake for about 10 minutes or until fat is rendered or when bacon is of your preferred texture. I baked for 15 and they were fine.
Does this remind you of something I blogged about called Barding? It's worth checking out if you want to feel like a professional chef!
