Paleo Bacon Wrapped Dates


My wife made some of these a few weeks ago...they are amazing! Then again, just about anything with bacon would be, right?

Ingredients:
  • 8 bacon slices, cut in half
  • 16 large Medjool dates, pitted
  • 16 whole almonds
  • toothpicks (optional)

Instructions:
  • Preheat oven to 375 F
  • Open up dates gently with a knife.
  • Stuff each date with an almond, and wrap with half of a bacon slice. Secure with a toothpick if necessary.
  • Place on a shallow baking sheet and bake, bacon seam down, for about 7 minutes.
  • Flip and bake for another 7 minutes or until bacon is crispy.
  • Serve warm or cold, and store leftovers in the refrigerator.
