Deviled Dates Recipe
Serves 6

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.

18 Medjool dates pitted
36 Marcona Almonds or 18 pieces of european-style sausage (or Fra'Mani Salametto) - cut into 1-inch-long quarter-inch square pieces
6 slices Applewood-smoked Bacon, or other thinly-sliced bacon, cut crosswise into thirds

1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees  

2. Remove pit. Needle nose pliers work best.

3. Stuff 1 to 2 Marcona almonds, or one piece of Salametto Piccante into each date.

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 - the dates and their sugar is hot, be sure to cool before eating.
