Air fryer bacon-wrapped dates recipe. Learn how to cook delicious dates in an air fryer. Very easy appetizer! Please note, the cooking time is just an estimate and can vary based on the Air Fryer model. I used my Kyvol Air Fryer, to make this delicious recipe.

What are Air Fryer Bacon-Wrapped Dates?

Bacon-wrapped dates are a delicious and crispy appetizer that combines the sweetness of dates with the savory flavor of bacon. This dish is perfect for those who want to enjoy a tasty snack without the guilt of deep-fried foods.

This recipe is easy to make, and it can be served as an appetizer or a party snack.

Ingredients and Equipment Needed

To make this recipe, you will need a few simple ingredients and equipment. For the ingredients, you will need pitted dates, bacon slices, and toothpicks. It is important to use pitted dates to avoid any choking hazards. You can use any type of bacon, but thick-cut bacon works best for this recipe.

For the equipment, you will need an air fryer and a pair of tongs. An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that uses hot air to cook food, resulting in crispy and delicious dishes without the added oil. If you don’t have an air fryer, you can also bake the bacon-wrapped dates in the oven.

Having all the necessary ingredients and equipment ready before starting the recipe will ensure a smooth cooking process and delicious results.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Making Air Fryer Bacon-Wrapped Dates

To make air fryer bacon-wrapped dates, follow these simple steps:

1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200° C).

2. Cut the bacon slices in half and wrap each date with a half slice of bacon. Secure it with a toothpick.

3. Place the bacon-wrapped dates in the air fryer basket, making sure they are not touching each other.

4. Cook for 8-10 minutes, flipping them halfway through the cooking time, until the bacon is crispy and the dates are soft.

5. Once done, remove the toothpicks and transfer the bacon-wrapped dates to a serving plate.

6. Serve hot and enjoy!

Note: Cooking times may vary depending on the size and thickness of the bacon and dates. Keep an eye on them while cooking to prevent burning.

Serving Suggestions and Variations

Once you’ve made your delicious bacon-wrapped dates, it’s time to think about how to serve them. These tasty treats are perfect as an appetizer or snack for any occasion. Here are some serving suggestions and variations to try:

1. Sweet and savory: Serve it with a drizzle of honey or maple syrup for a sweet and savory combination.

2. Cheese lovers: Add a small cube of cheese inside the date before wrapping it in bacon. This will give your dish an extra burst of flavor and creaminess.

3. Spicy kick: If you like things spicy, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to the bacon before wrapping it around the date.

4. Dipping sauces: Serve your bacon-wrapped dates with dipping sauces such as ranch, barbecue sauce, or even spicy mustard.

5. Salad topping: Chop up your bacon-wrapped dates and add them as a topping to your favorite salad for a unique and flavorful twist.

No matter how you choose to serve them, these air fryer bacon-wrapped dates are sure to be a hit with everyone who tries them.
