Dates and Sun-dried Tomatoes taste a whole lot better than the prunes used in the past.
YOU WILL NEED
- 400 g fresh or dried dates, pipped
- 1 x 240 g Ina Paarman’s Sun-dried Tomato Quarters, drained
- 200 - 250 g streaky bacon, cut in half
- ¼ cup (60 ml) brandy
- Ina Paarman’s Sweet Chilli Chutney
- cocktail sticks
Adjust oven rack to middle position. Preheat oven to 200°C.
Place a piece of Sun-dried Tomato into each pipped date. Wrap each stuffed date in half a piece of bacon.
Place the dates on an oiled griddle pan and bake in a hot oven for ± 15 – 20 minutes.
Warm the brandy a little. Pour the warmed brandy over the date rolls in the pan, while still warm and set it alight.
This concentrates the flavour and burns off some of the fat.
