    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (8 ounce) package pitted dates
    • 1 can blue diamond roasted salted almond
    • 1 lb bacon, sliced in half


    1. 1
      Put one or two almonds inside date and wrap with 1/2 slice of bacon.
    2. 2
      May need to use toothpick.
    3. 3
      I used a deep fryer at 350º and fried them for a couple minutes.
    4. 4
      You could also pan fry (or Wok) until bacon cooked.
    5. 5
      Some have tried baking at 425º until bacon cooked – but this method takes longer and bacon not cooked as evenly.

      This is a fantastic & delicious appetizer! I partially cooked the bacon before wrapping & baking to cook more evenly.

      These are delicious! I took them to a party last night and it was the first dish emptied! I did opt to bake them @400 for 20 minutes, then put them under the broiler for an additional 5 minutes to crisp up the bacon.

      I recommend the broiler for 10 minutes. Deep frying is just too messy. I used turkey bacon, and a piece of feta cheese inside with the almond. The saltiness is perfect!
