Description


Suzanne Goin put these on the map at her LA restaurant A.O.C. But I have made a Kosher version by substituting macon or turkey bacon.

They make the most incredible appetizers and are perfect with a cocktail. The dates become syrupy from grilling them and the Macon gets all crispy and golden brown.

Guests go crazy for the little parcels of salted candy. So you might need to triple the recipe. And I think they are a fun new twist on old boring starters.
