    sassafrasnanc's Note:

    Don't let anyone tell you otherwise...THESE ARE WONDERFUL. They are always the very first thing to go at a party. When I catered I always told my customers to order 2-3 times more of these than anything else. Most people expect scallops but are pleasantly surprised by the sweet wonderful flavor inside. A combination of sweet, crunchy, salty and smoky is a real winner! You won't be sorry you went out on a limb to try these. You can prep ahead of time, freeze and then pull them out of the freezer and bake right before the party.

      A great recipe.<br/><br/>I really like to add a drop of honey on top of the bacon before starting to cook them. It provides a glazing that really adds to the flavor.

      This recipe is amazing! I cut the bacon strips into thirds. The wrapped dates were then baked for 10 minutes, turned over, and baked an additional 10 minutes. I found that if I didn't turn them the bottoms would be over cooked, possibly because they were baked for 20 minutes rather than 15 minutes. Thanks sassafrasnanc!

      I've made these several times and they are always a hit. They are ideal to take to a pot luck or function where an appetizer is required. We first tasted them in Spain at a tapas bar and later saw the recipe on Zaar. Be sure to use blanched almonds. A bit tedious to make, but well worth the time.
