This is a fantastic & delicious appetizer! I partially cooked the bacon before wrapping & baking to cook more evenly.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (8 ounce) package pitted dates
  • 1 can blue diamond roasted salted almond
  • 1 lb bacon, sliced in half


  1. Put one or two almonds inside date and wrap with 1/2 slice of bacon.
  2. May need to use toothpick.
  3. I used a deep fryer at 350º and fried them for a couple minutes.
  4. You could also pan fry (or Wok) until bacon cooked.
  5. Some have tried baking at 425º until bacon cooked – but this method takes longer and bacon not cooked as evenly.
