An excellent match of sweet, smoky, and salty.
As many dates as you want.
whole dates whole blanched almonds bacon
You can use whatever nuts you like, as long as the fit in the dates.
You can use regular dates or Medjools.
The dates are going to get very sweet, so use the smookiest bacon you can find that also has plenty of salt.
For regular dates you’ll need 1/3 to 1/2 a slice of bacon per date; for Medjools you might get away with half a slice per date but buy one slice per date just in case. There are worse things in life than having left-over bacon.
Difficulty: Easy Time: Up to 1 hour (less with pitted dated and blanched almonds). Precision: 1
