  • 36 pitted medjool dates
  • 36 whole unsalted almonds
  • 12 slices bacon cut into thirds
  • maple syrup *optional: for drizzling. Trader Joe's bourbon barrel aged Vermont maple syrup is delicious drizzled on top.


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  
  • Stuff dates with almonds and then wrap with a slice of bacon.  Arrange on a wire rack sprayed with cooking spray over a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.  If you like the bacon a little more golden and crisp on top, turn on the broiler (watching carefully so they don’t burn, it won’t take long) and cook just long enough for the bacon to lightly brown.  
  • While warm, drizzle with a little maple syrup, if desired.  Serve with toothpicks warm or at room temperature.


  • Do not use thick-cut bacon! Thinly sliced bacon cooks faster and gets crispy.
  • A third of a slice of bacon is just enough to wrap each date securely with just a bit of overlap. If there's too much overlap, the bacon will not cook evenly. There's a time and a place for floppy, chewy bacon, but the goal here is CRISPY bacon.
