  • 1/2 pound ground hot italian sausage
  • 20 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 pound bacon
  • hot sauce, for garnishing


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheet with foil.
  2. Brown italian sausage in a pan, break into pieces and cook until no pink remains. Let cool slightly.
  3. Cut the side open of each date, remove pit and stuff with sausage. Wrap with half a piece of bacon, tucking the ends underneath to help keep it secure when cooking. Place on baking sheet and repeat with all dates.
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until bacon is crispy (the time will range depending on the thickness of the bacon).
  5. Pour just a little bit of hot sauce on top of each date and serve with a toothipick dead in the center!
