Jeremiah, my 8 year old, loves dates. We go to the movies, he brings dates. We bring out dessert, he eats dates. We go to Sam’s Club and you better believe he is going to remind the mess out of me until I get him more dates. So when we’re trying to think of a fun appetizer Jeremiah’s first idea for an ingredient is dates!
If you’ve never had dates before and this idea seems like one you would normally pass on, don’t. Give these a try and believe me, your whole family will absolutely LOVE them. I wasn’t sure how they would turn out but let me tell you, they are amazing. My mouth is watering just thinking about them! The combination of flavors and textures work together perfectly to make the world’s best bite of goodness. And of course, this recipe is super simple.
Here’s what you need:
Bacon (I used sliced pork belly which is why my bacon looks thicker. Regular bacon will work great.)
Here’s what you do:
1. Preheat oven to 4oo degrees.
2. Carefuly remove seeds from dates
3. Push 2 almonds into each date.
4. Wrap each date with one piece of bacon.
5. Place bacon-wrapped dates on cookie sheet.
6. Bake for 15-20 minutes until bacon is crispy.
