For the microwave.

The CURRENT recipe will charcoal your appetizer into a smoking inedible lump of coal and should be removed from this site or at the very least, serve as a warning to others. If you cook bacon in the microwave on high for 6 minutes as indicated here, you will have a burnt stone of an appetizer. Instead, wrap the almond-stuffed date in a 1/3 length of thick sliced bacon and skewer with toothpick. Place in casserole dish and bake uncovered for 30-45 minutes (depending on thickness of bacon) at 375 degrees. Drain and cool on wire rack.

Directions

  1. Cut each bacon slice in half crosswise.
  2. Place bacon on paper toweling on a microwave-safe plate, cover with another paper towel.
  3. Microwave on high 4 minutes.
  4. Roll up each date in a piece of bacon, place bacon-wrapped dates on clean toweling on microwave-safe plate, cover with another paper towel.
  5. Microwave on high 2 minutes, until bacon is crisp.
  6. Serve hot.
