Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Dates

    30 min

    This is easy especially if you live near a good shop that sells dates already stuffed with nuts. I've used almonds, pecans and cashews - all work. This is great when you need a starter in a hurry. I buy everything at Garsons Farm Shop in Esher.

    I used almonds and stuffed the dates myself. It was fiddly, and I suggest you prepare these ahead of time, put them on a baking sheet, cover them with cling film & put them in the fridge until ready to bake.Then bake for about 15 mins. They were an interesting taste, quite morish. I found wrapping them in the bacon quite challenging. Choose your bacon carefully with the task at hand in mind.. This will save you time when wrapping the dates. I saved all the little bits that I couldn't use and will make an omelette with them..  -  27 Dec 2009
