Slit the dates. Place one almond inside each date.
Cut each strip of bacon into thirds. Wrap the filled dates with bacon, using toothpicks to hold them together. Place on a broiler pan.
Broil 5-6 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven. Remove the toothpicks, turn the bacon wrapped dates over and broil another 5-6 minutes, or until bacon is evenly brown and crisp, watch carefully. Reinsert the toothpicks for serving.
Cook's Note: It's important to cook on a broiler pan, so that grease drains off while cooking.
