Bacon Wrapped Dates with Spicy Yogurt Dip
8 oz pitted dates
16 oz bacon
6-8 oz plain yogurt
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
½ tsp hot chili sauce
Preheat oven to 400°.
Roll bacon strips around dates and secure with toothpicks. (If the bacon is thick cut, a ½ strip will do. And since today is a Seahawks playoff game, my toothpicks are blue and green.) Place on cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil -- it makes clean-up a LOT easier! Bake 30 minutes or until bacon is crispy.
While they're baking, stir cayenne and/or hot sauce into 6-8 oz plain yogurt. I've been using a single serving container of good, thick Greek yogurt. More or less of the cayenne and/or chili sauce...do you want to actually be able to taste or just feel the heat?
Thanks goes to my cousin, Ryan, for the personalized "Savory Table" serving plate made especially for my blogging posts! Love it!!
