Spanish Style Dates With Bacon

20 pitted large dates
20 roasted, unsalted almonds
10 slices bacon, cut crosswise in half


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut a small slit in each date. Insert an almond into the dates; press the date together to seal.  Wrap each date with a bacon slice.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.  Place a roasting rack on top of the baking sheet. Add the dates and roast for 20 minutes until the dates are hot and the bacon is crisp.  Serve immediately with toothpicks.
