Date Rumaki is a staple at all of my parties now. I have said it before, if I don’t serve rumaki, I really think my friends will revolt and not come. It is a must and my friends expect it now. That’s perfectly ok with me – I love that my friends feel they can count on me to give a good party!
- 1 box of pitted dates
- 1 bottle of green olives with pimientos
- 1 package of bacon
- Bake at 375 degrees
- Take the bacon out of the package and cut each slice in half. Slice dates down one side and place a green olive in the date. Take a slice of bacon and wrap around the date, placing toothpick through bacon, date, and olive so it stays in place. Place bundles on a cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes or until the bacon is slightly crispy. Serve hot if possible but they taste good no matter what!
