12 slices bacon
36 oil-packed almond-stuffed green olives (see note)
1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. On a cutting board, cut each bacon slice crosswise into 3 equal pieces. Roll an olive in each bacon piece, securing with a toothpick. Place on the baking sheet. Bake until the bacon is nicely browned and crisp 30 to 35 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serve in a large bowl.
3. Taste the olives the day before making the recipe. If they are too salty, soak them in cold water for up to 24 hours.
