6 pieces of regular bacon
12 medjool dates
1 (6 oz) package linguica sausage
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Take a small knife & cut a slit down the side of each date & remove the seed. Do not cut the date in half. Cut the sausage into 6 thin slices (maybe 1/4 inch thick). Now, you have 6 round 1/4 inch slices of sausage. Cut these in half. So, now you have 12 "slivers" of sausage. Remove 6 slices of bacon & cut them in half. Take one sliver of sausage & place it into the date. It should fit in nicely & not be to big or small (remember, you want to taste the sausage). Now, take one of half slices of bacon & wrap it around the date so that the bacon holds the sausage in the date. The bacon should wrap all the way around the date. Now stick a toothpick through Repeat this until all the dates are stuffed & wrapped. Now, place the wrapped dates on a cookie sheet & put them in the oven for 20 mins (or until the bacon looks crisp). Let them cool & enjoy.
