Bacon Wrapped Dates with Goat Cheese

December 29, 2017

What's a staple party food for us for New Years? Dates stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in bacon, and seared to perfection. Our main goal for this year is to spend less time actually making the food and more time with the people we want around. :)

Find the recipe below!



1 package Pitted Dates

1 log Goat Cheese

3/4# Hickory Smoked Bacon (John F Martin is our favorite!)



Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Step 1: Slice dates on one side, just enough so you can open it to the center. 

Step 2: Stuff the goat cheese until it almost spills out.

Step 3: Cut the bacon into 3" strips, and wrap around the dates. It works best if you place the bacon overlap somewhere else than where the goat cheese is in the date. 

Step 4: Place on an aluminum covered sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, until done. Let cool slightly and serve.
