Stuffed DatesIngredients
24 pitted large medjool dates
12 slices bacon cut crosswise (about 12 ounces)
24 whole toasted almonds, walnuts or other nut
Fresh pepper to taste

Heat oven to 500 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with foil.

Stuff each date with an almond. Wrap each date with one of the halves of bacon and secure with a toothpick.

Put on a baking sheet seam side down. Sprinkle with ground fresh pepper to taste.

Bake until the bacon is crisp, about 6 minutes. Serve immediately.

If you a feeling creative and have the time: Add goat cheese into each date before adding the almond. Put about 2 ounces of soft goat cheese into a large tipped pastry bag and pipe enough cheese to fill the dates cavity halfway. Finish stuffing the date with an almond . Continue with the rest of the steps.
