Goat Cheese Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Dates are a huge hit at every party and much easier to make than you'd think.
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.
