Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Cut the dates open, remove the seeds, and slip the almonds into the center of each. Wrap each date in 1/3 slice of bacon, tucking the loose ends under the date. Arrange the dates in rows on a baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Place on a paper-towel-lined-plate to soak up some of the grease; let cool slightly before serving.
VARIATION: Substitute blue cheese for the almonds, or try prunes instead of dates.
