Bacon Wrapped Dates

Bacon Wrapped Dates

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 24 pieces

Ingredients

  • 24 Medjool dates
  • 24 Marcona or whole roasted almonds
  • 4 ounces honey goat cheese
  • 12 slices very thin bacon

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

    Slice the dates lengthwise, on one side only, and remove the pit. Place an almond inside each date. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of goat cheese into the other side of the date and press both sides together to close.

    Cut each slice of bacon in half. Wrap each date with a slice of bacon and secure it with a toothpick.

    Transfer the dates to the parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven, take out the toothpick and turn the dates over. Bake for another 10 minutes or until the bacon is crisp on both sides.

    Remove from the oven and transfer to a paper towel lined plate and let cool for 3 to 5 minutes before serving.
