bacon wrapped dates with goat cheese

Updated: Sep 10, 2019


Let's be honest.... don't these just sound amazing!? I don't think that you have ever tasted something so good until you indulge in these! Just wait. They are best as an appetizer for a meal, or even as a side dish to bring to a tailgate, a friend's party, or even a wine night! They're the perfect combination of sweet and salty that I guarantee you that you will find yourself struggling to just eat one. (Or seven....definitely what I do). #noshame

Okay, I'm done rambling on about them -- I'm just going to share the recipe with you and let you try them for yourself! And the best news of all!? They only take a few minutes to prepare and only about 20 minutes in the oven!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20-25 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Serving Size: 12-15 dates

Ingredients:

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  • Take the dates, and using a knife, slice a slit in them length-wise (just try not to cut them entirely into two halves)

  • Using a butter knife, put a small dab of the goat cheese in the slit from the date, and close the date back together

  • Cut the bacon strips in half, and slowly wrap around the dates until both ends of the bacon touch, and toothpick them together.

  • Continue until you have finished wrapping all dates.

  • Put the dates on a slightly greased pan, and put into the oven for about 12 minutes.

  • Once 12 minutes is over, flip the date to the other side and continue to cook them until the bacon is a gold-brown color (should be about 8-10 more minutes!)

  • Remove, and let cool for a few minutes before serving.

  • Enjoy!!!

Kell
