Bacon Wrapped Dates Recipe

This recipe is great for an hors d’oeuvre, a side plate item or just a quick snack. I originally tried these in a Spanish tapas restaurant and liked them so much I decided to try my hand at making them. The recipe is very simple and requires little.

You will need:

bacon (thinly sliced)

dates (buy them already pitted if possible)

almond slivers (optional)


To Make:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees

If you are using almonds, stuff one or two slivers into each date.

Cut the bacon strips down the middle. They should be about 4-5 inches long after.

Wrap the bacon around the date and place a toothpick to hold in place.

On a foil lined baking sheet, place the bacon wrapped dates evenly spaced.

Cook for approximately 15 minutes, then turn each date and cook again until evenly cooked.

These dates are best served at room temperature or cold. Serving them hot could cause burns because of the juice inside


Spinal Surgery in The Villages, FL side effects

Spinal Surgery In The Villages, FL

Before you commit to a major operation that is irreversible, why not let the doctors at Legacy Clinic take a look at your condition and see if they can help you? Spinal surgery has it’s place and time, but often there are alternative and more effective ways of treating back or neck pain. The doctors at Legacy Clinic have had many patients who have come to them after hearing from the surgeon that the ONLY way to fix their problem was to go under the knife. After a few weeks with the doctors, they were pain free and able to enjoy their lives again. All that with no scarring, no heavy narcotics and no huge screws in their spines.

Even cosmetic or “routine” surgeries come with risks, but spinal surgeries carry extra risks due to the fact that your spinal cord helps to control most of the functions our bodies perform. It is possible to do more damage than was already done. Some of the possible risks include: Infection, blood clots, dural tears, leakage of cerebrospinal fluid, facial sores, loss of vision, nerve injury, paralysis and death. While not all of these are common complications with spinal surgery they are definitely worth considering.
