A family favorite! Easy impressive-looking and utterly delicious appetizer.
8 oz dates, pitted
½ lb pastrami
Preheat oven to 350, and line a baking sheet with foil.
Slice dates in half lengthwise (and remove pit if not already pitted).
Wrap a slice of pastrami around each date half, and secure with a wooden (not plastic!) toothpick. You may want to slice the pastrami in half lengthwise, to cover more dates.
Arrange on prepared baking sheet, and bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
