Bacon Wrapped Dates (Paleo)

I love how this is an appetizer that everyone (well, everyone except vegans) will love regardless of whether they eat paleo or not. Medjool dates are the plumpest so definitely get them if they’re available.

Bacon Wrapped Dates

12 Medjool dates, pitted
6 slices bacon
12 pecan or walnut halves

Preheat oven to 500 degrees (or use broiler setting). Place a pecan/walnut half inside each date. Wrap the date with  bacon and secure with a toothpick and place on a baking sheet. Cook 10 minutes. Dab them on a paper towel then serve.



Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs (Paleo)

I love eggs and deviled eggs are one of my favorite appetizers! Adding smoked salmon just makes them a little fancier.

Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs

  • 8 hard boiled eggs
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Slice eggs in half lengthwise and place the yolks in a bowl. Set the whites aside on a plate or tray, cut side up. Season with a little salt.

To the yolks add the mayo, mustard, lemon juice, chives, dill, salmon, salt, and pepper. Mix well until combined and smooth. Spoon the filling into a large ziploc bag and cut one of the ends off (to use like a pastry bag). Fill the egg whites with the egg yolk mixture. Place in the fridge to chill, then serve. You can garnish with a little more dill or chive or even a sprinkle of paprika.
