Super Easy Gluten Free Appetizer - Bacon n' Dates
This is probably one of the most unattractive appetizers out there, but they are so yummy. Just be a little creative in your presentation (or not) and they'll get eaten up in a jiffy. The balance between sweet, salty and crunchy is totally addictive!!!
1 can waterchestnuts
1 package of smoked streaky bacon
12 or so fresh Medjool dates
Gluten Free Tamari soya sauce
Cut Medjool dates in half, removing the pit. Marinate in soya sauce for about an hour.
While the dates are marinating, place bacon on a non stick baking sheet lined with tin foil and bake in the oven until partially cooked. Should start to turn brown but not too firm. Remove from oven and allow to cool. You'll finish baking later.
Take 1/2 a date, one waterchestnut and wrap with bacon. Repeat until all done. Place on a cookie sheet and bake at around 200F / 400C for another 10 minutes or until bacon is done. A few minutes before removing from the oven, finish with a bit more soya sauce.
Remove from oven and serve warm.
