Found this recipe to be a wonderful combination of smoky sweetness. I have served these terrific appetizers at gatherings with friends and family over last two decades. They are always a resounding success. Recently made them for a Halloween party as they are also known as "Gremlins on Horseback". Once again--great success! So simple but full of wonderful bite sized flavor. Enjoy.

How to Make Bacon Wrapped Dates

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Carefully inspect all dates for any remaining bits and pieces of pits; remove and discard any that are found.
  3. Evenly slice each bacon slice vertically into thirds. You should end up with 36 bacon pieces about 2 1/2 inches long.
  4. Place an almond into a pitted date. Repeat until all dates are filled.
  5. Taking a bacon piece wrap it around an almond-filled date; secure with a toothpick. Repeat until all dates are wrapped.
  6. Cover a cooking sheet with foil. Place a baking rack on top of the foil covered cookie sheet.
  7. Place all bacon-wrapped dates onto baking rack; I usually end up with four rows when dates are evenly spaced on the baking rack.
  8. Place in 425 degree F oven; bake, turning once, for 40 minutes or until bacon is crisp.
