I want to make these as a Christmas app. The recipe I have involves stuffing a pitted prune with a blanched almond (wrapped in an anchovy), then wrapping the prune in bacon and broiling until crispy.
Do you think I should par-cook the bacon a bit in the microwave first? I'd like it to be pretty crispy.
Also, I don't have any anchovies, and I'm a little iffy on the inclusion in this recipe. I do, however, have anchovy paste. Should I bother substituting, or just omit?
Thanks for letting me pick your brains at 1AM German time! :)
