Chorizo-Filled Dates in Bacon


Chorizo-Filled Dates in Bacon
(24 servings)

 
Ingredients:

2-3 oz. Spanish Chorizo Sausage, casing removed
24 Medjool Dates, pitted
12 slices Thin Smoked Bacon, halved crosswise

Directions:

Slice sausage in thirds crosswise (about length of date).  Halve each piece lengthwise and then cut each half into 4 pieces lengthwise to make 24 pieces of sausage.  Tuck a piece into each date and pinch closed.  Wrap a strip of bacon around each date and secure with a toothpick.  Using a large skillet over medium-high heat, saut√© the wrapped dates seam side down.  Turn them as needed until bacon is browned on all sides (about 10 minutes).  Remove to a paper towel lined dish to drain.  Do in batches if needed.  Place on a serving dish and serve hot.

Note:               You could use another type of sausage if
                        your tastes prefer.
