How to Make Coca Cola Glazed Bacon-Wrapped Dates


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut bacon slices in half and cook in medium skillet over medium heat 1 minute on each side. Drain on paper towel and set aside. (Bacon should be soft.)
    Add vinegar, Coca Cola, mustard and garlic to skillet. Cook on medium heat 3 to 4 minutes or until it becomes a thickened glaze.
    While glaze is cooking, slice one side of each date lengthwise and remove pit. Fill each date with 1/2 tsp cream cheese and 1 almond, then pinch date closed.
  2. Wrap each stuffed date with 1/2 sliced bacon and secure with wooden toothpicks. Remove glaze from heat and stir in salt, pepper and butter. In nonstick rimmed baking sheet, drizzle 1 Tbls sauce and place 4 dates side by side in each.
    Evenly drizzle remaining sauce over tops and bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly, about 5 minutes. Serve.
