Making these little flavor bombs is actually very easy. We start with Medjool dates, make a little slice to remove the pit and then spoon a little goat cheese where the pit used to be. Then wrap with bacon and pop in the oven until crispy!
Want to spice things up? Add a little jalapeño to that goat cheese. If you want to sweeten the deal roll in maple syrup before baking. No matter which you choose the result will be nothing short of mouth watering!
Add Them To A Platter!
Served alone these are exquisite but I also love to add them to my Ultimate Mediterranean Appetizer Platter!
The Recipe: Goat Cheese Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Dates
What you need: a rimmed baking sheet (like this) unbleached parchment paper (like this)
Goat Cheese Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Dates are a huge hit at every party and much easier to make than you'd think.
- 20 Medjool dates, pitted
- 4 oz soft goat cheese
- 10 strips of thin sliced bacon, cut in half
- maple syrup or brown sugar
- sea salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place parchment paper on cookie sheet.
Slice dates almost end to end. Pull out pit. Use a small spoon to put a little goat cheese into date. Wrap with half a slice of bacon and run a toothpick through (side to side) to hold bacon on place. Place on parchment covered cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Remove toothpicks, serve.
Before baking roll in brown sugar or sprinkle with sea salt. If you want a spicy bacon wrapped date, mince jalepeno and add a teaspoon or two to the goat cheese before filling dates.
