Those yummy bacon-date tapas

I apologize for not having a photo of the finished product.  They were gone before I could get my camera.  Therefore, you’ll just have to try them for yourself.


Procure a quantity of fresh dates, preferably pitted, although slicing them open doesn’t take long.


You’ll also need as many whole almonds as you have dates,


…and air-dried ham or lean bacon in thin slices.

Pop an almond into each pitted date, wrap a slice of bacon around that, and secure it with a toothpick.


Bake 200°C (400°F) until the bacon sizzles, about 10 minutes.  You could broil them or fry them in a skillet instead, but I tend to burn them that way.  These could also be grilled, if you have the right pan for it.


So yummy!

Ordinarily, I don't eat pork.  I'm only in it for the laughs, really…
