Ingredients

  • Toothpicks
  • 20 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 4 oz soft goat cheese
  • 10 strips of thin sliced bacon, cut in half

Optional:

  • jalepeno
  • maple syrup or brown sugar
  • sea salt

Instructions

  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.

Variations:

  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.
