Paleo Bacon Wrapped Dates are a simple hors d’oeuvres that you can enjoy any time.

A long time ago I went to a friend’s private school reunion.  It was a gourmet affair.  I was surprised to see the wait staff serving caviar and fois gras on crackers.  French red wines (over $500 per bottle) were slurped up by the guests like  they were drinking $10 quaffers.  So many gourmet hors d’oeuvres came by my face.  Being a foodie, and at that time a wine writer, I tried everything available.  I did notice, however, that the guests seemed to prefer the simple hors d’oeuvres the most.  Guests were popping these little gems into their mouths with ease and speed.  I loved them too.   It was then that I realized that the simplest hors d’oeuvres are always a hit at parties.

Bacon-wrapped dates are the perfect Paleo hors d’oeuvre.  These gems are super simple to prepare and taste wonderful! 

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF PALEO BACON-WRAPPED DATES?

These  Paleo Bacon Wrapped Dates have decent nutrition.  Dates are higher in polyphenols than any of the most commonly consumed fruits and vegetables?  Polyphenols neutralize free radicals, helping to reduce the damage caused by inflammation.   Inflammation is directly associated with heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, and a list of autoimmune diseases.  Dates are also a good source of various vitamins and minerals, and fiber and contain calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and zinc.  While naturally high in natural sugar, dates also have fiber.  Because of the fiber, the sugar in dates is digested slowly and doesn’t spike sugar levels.  This gives dates a low GI and makes them safe for diabetics.

WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF PALEO BACON-WRAPPED DATES?

These Healthy (Paleo) Bacon Wrapped Dates shine with the taste sensations of fattiness and saltiness from the bacon and sweetness from the dates.  So good!

WHAT BEVERAGE HARMONIZES WITH PALEO BACON-WRAPPED DATES?

To create harmony on the palate you would need a non alcoholic wine sweeter than the Bacon Wrapped Dates.  Dates are sweet. Pairing the appropriate sweet wine to match the dates is just far too much sugar to consume at one time. Monitoring sugar intake is important because it helps prevent blood sugar spikes and crashes, reduces the risk of health issues like obesity and diabetes, and maintains overall well-being.  Choose hot tea.  You can always pair the flavours of the crumble with those in the tea. 

Here are 5 hot teas that would complement bacon-wrapped dates:

  1. Spicy Chai Latte – The robust, spicy flavors of chai tea, such as cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger, would pair excellently with the sweet and salty combination of the bacon-wrapped dates.
  2. Assam Black Tea – The full-bodied, malty flavor of an Assam black tea would stand up well to the richness of the bacon-wrapped dates. The slightly bitter notes could help cut through the sweetness.
  3. Masala Chai – A traditional Indian-style chai made with black tea, milk, and a blend of warming spices like cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger would be a classic pairing for the bacon-wrapped dates.
  4. Cinnamon-Infused Black Tea – A black tea blended with cinnamon would echo the flavors in the bacon-wrapped dates, creating a harmonious pairing.
  5. Lapsang Souchong – The smoky, earthy notes of this Chinese black tea could provide an interesting contrast to the sweet and salty bacon-wrapped dates.
