1 pound dried dates, pitted
1 pound bacon, cooked, extra grease patted off, cooled, and crumbled
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment or wax paper, leaving about a 1-inch overhang on at least 2 sides.
Place the dates in a food processor fitted with the blade attachment and pulse a few times to break them up. If necessary, separate the dates if they clump together. Add the bacon and sesame oil, then process until the ingredients break down, then clump together into a ball, about 1 minute.
Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking pan. Use another piece of parchment or wax paper to press it into the pan and form an even layer. Uncover, then sprinkle the top with the sesame seeds.
Freeze for 30 to 40 minutes. Pull up on the excess parchment or wax paper to remove the slab from the pan and place on a cutting board. Cut into 1-inch squares.
