How To:

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!

Flavor Options!

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!

  • 4 oz soft goat cheese
  • 10 strips of thin sliced bacon, cut in half
  • jalepeno
  • maple syrup or brown sugar
  • sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place parchment paper on cookie sheet.

  2. 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.

  1. 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.
