Bacon-wrapped Goat Cheese Dates
Who doesn't love being wrapped in a bacon jacket? These dates are a savory, sweet, smoky bite of heaven that makes a perfect appetizer to feed a crowd for a cocktail party, football-watching party, or just because you want something easy and delicious!
Prep Time: 00:05
Cook Time: 00:30
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.
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.
