Bacon Wrapped Dates

  • 18 Large Medjool Dates
  • 18 Pieces Gruyere or Parmesan cheese ( about 1” x 1/4”)
  • 6 slices bacon, each cut into thirds

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Slit each date along one side and remove the pit.

Insert a piece of cheese into each date.

Wrap a piece of bacon around each stuffed date and secure with a toothpick.

Put the dates on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake for about 6-7 minutes until the bacon on top is crisp.

Using tongs, turn the dates and bake for another 6-7 minutes until the bacon is crisp.

Remove from the oven and place the dates on to a paper towel lined plate to absorb any grease from the bacon.

Dates may be arranged on a platter as an appetizer, or used as a fresh baby greens salad topper.
