Bacon-Wrapped, Pineapple-Stuffed Dates

Ingredients:

  • 1 – 2 lbs large Medjool dates
  • 1 -2 lbs bacon
  • 1 – 2 cups fresh pineapple
  • 1/2 – 1 cup whole, dry-roasted, unsalted almonds (optional)
Instructions:
  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Pit the dates with a chopstick to create a nice clean hollow through the date. Slice the fresh pineapple into slivers that will fit the hollow. Cut the bacon strips in half.
  3. Stuff the fresh pineapple into the dates. You can also jam an almond or two in some of the bigger dates.
  4. Wrap each date with a half-slice of bacon and skewer with a toothpick to secure the bacon around the date.
  5. Place on a cookie sheet and broil for 10 minutes or until the bacon is crispy. Let cool on a paper towel.
Makes 2 -3 dozen.

  1. We all wake up each day and trust our old friend to start our
    day – the coffeemaker. Many people love to drink their coffee
    hot and mixed with different flavors, even though some would prefer to have their coffee cold.

    Look for the clean, sleek design and good performance.
