  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut a slit in each date. Place almonds inside slits. Press together the dates to close slits. Wrap each date with a piece of bacon.
  2. Line a shallow baking pan with Reynolds Wrap(R) Aluminum Foil. Add a roasting rack; place the dates on rack. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Serve immediately with toothpicks. Dates will be hot inside.


  • Aluminum foil is a must for roasting the appetizer. It collects any drippings from the bacon for a quick cleanup at the end. To line the pan fast, turn pan upside down and press sheet of aluminum foil around it. With aluminum foil, you can use either shiny side up or dull side up. Remove the aluminum foil. Turn over; drop foil inside. Crimp edges and you're ready to cook.

Really good and easy... but I found that I like mine with more bacon, especially when my dates are bigger. Would recommend using a whole slice of bacon rather than a half since they shrink in th...

Love this appetizer - simple and delicious and always a favorite of guests. I also, very lightly, sprinkle a little cayenne pepper on them before popping in the oven

Good. Easy

These were a big hit with my family and at a party I threw this weekend. I didn't use the almonds. I am happy with how it turned out. Because of the hot weather, I didn't want to turn the ove...

Awesome! Used whole cashews instead of almonds.

My sister in law from Sweden turned me on to this recipe. I used Trader Joes dates, took the pit out, put an almond in the middle (nice crunch cause its a bit of a squishy texture without it) pr...

Amazing! Rave reviews! Made it for my gluten free family & it was a big hit! Cooking time was more like 35 minutes.

I made these for a Thanksgiving appetizer. Something different and everyone loved them, even those who at first grimaced when I said "dates"!
