 Deviled Dates Recipe

These bacon-wrapped dates with almonds are always a big hit in the Spanish Tapas Cooking Class. We made them with Applewood Smoked Bacon, Marcona Almonds and Fra'Mani Salametto. So easy and so perfect.


1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees  


2. Remove pit. Needle nose pliers work best.

3. Stuff 1 to 2 Marcona almonds

4. Then wrap one piece of bacon around each date and secure bacon with a toothpick.

5. Arrange dates, bacon seam down and 1 inch apart in a shallow baking pan.

6. Bake 10 minutes, then turn dates over with tongs and bake until bacon is crisp, about 10 minutes more.

7. Drain on a paper towel. Serve warm. CAUTION - dates with their sugar are hot, be sure to cool before eating.
