  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
  • 12 slices bacon
  • 24 thin slices cured chorizo sausage
  • 24 dates, pitted and sliced open on one side


Heat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium saucepan over high heat, combine vinegar, brown sugar, rosemary, and pepper. Bring to a boil; then reduce to a simmer until sauce thickens to a syrup, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.

Parcook bacon; then remove to a plate lined with a paper towel. Slice bacon in half diagonally. Place one chorizo piece inside the "pocket" of each date. Wrap with bacon and secure with a toothpick.

Bake dates until bacon is browned and sizzling, about 5 minutes. Drain on a paper towel; then drizzle with balsamic reduction sauce.
