Bacon Wrapped Almond Stuffed Dates Recipe

2 dozen pitted dates
2 dozen whole blanched almonds
12 slices bacon, cut in thirds
2 dozen toothpicks

Preheat oven to 450F.

Stuff an almond into the center of each date, where the pit used to be. Wrap each date with a section of bacon and pierce with a toothpick to hold bacon ends together. Place dates on a baking sheet and bake for 5 to 10 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your bacon. The stuffed dates get very hot, so be careful when eating them to avoid burning your mouth.

Makes 2 dozen.
