Main Ingredients

12 medjool dates

1 ounce semi-firm goat cheese (or crumbled if you can find a firmer version)*

4 slices center-cut bacon


1Preheat oven to 425.

2Slice open dates to remove pits. Replace pit with half-inch piece of goat cheese and fold closed. Repeat with all twelve.

3Cut bacon slices into thirds. Wrap a slice of bacon around the cut portion of the date, acting like a bacon bandaid. Hold in place with a toothpick. Repeat with all twelve.

4Arrange on a parchment or aluminum-lined baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes. If you prefer crunchier bacon, raise the temperature to 450 for the last 5-10 minutes. If you prefer chewier bacon, keep the temperature at 425 and roast another 5-10 minutes. Depending on your oven and type of bacon, you'll have to watch how long your dates really need to get to roasted perfection.

5Remove from oven and cool for 5-10 minutes. If the pan looks a little greasy, let those dates rest on a paper towel-lined plate for a few minutes before serving.

Additional Notes

Can't find or don't like goat cheese? You could easily replace it with blue cheese or a different semi-firm cheese like asiago, manchego, or classic cheddar.
