Bacon Wrapped Dates

Author: Debbie Dance Uhrig


Special thanks to Debbie Dance Uhrig of The Covered Dish for sharing this Bacon Wrapped Dates recipe with us.


These simple appetizers have brought me a great deal of positive feedback. My good friend and mentor, Sharon Short, from Platte City, Missouri first introduced them to me. They make a very simple opener for an elegant dinner. You will note that extra sauces have been eliminated. If you use a quality bacon like Petit Jean, you won’t need additional sauces. Also, if it’s a black tie affair and guests are in formal wear, a gooey dish means a possible visit to the dry cleaners! (This cook always misses her mouth!)



INGREDIENTS
12 slices Petit Jean Hickory Smoked Bacon
24 Whole Almonds
24 Fresh Dates



INSTRUCTIONS
1.) Cut bacon strips into halves.
2.) Stuff each date with a whole almond, wrap with bacon and place seam side down on a parchment covered baking sheet.
3.) Bake in 350 degree oven until bacon is done for 30-40 minutes.
