This sweet and salty appetizer recipe takes just a few minutes to make and will leave you not wanting to share! With just 3 ingredients, these Bacon Wrapped Dates with Goat Cheese are creamy and delicious.
Prepare a cookie sheet with a piece of aluminum foil sprayed lightly with cooking spray.
Make sure each date has the pit removed and is cut down one side so you can open it up (but is not in two pieces)
Using a butter knife or spreader, add a small amount of goat cheese (about 1 tsp) to each date.
Cut or tear each piece of bacon in half.
Wrap a half piece of bacon around the date stuffed with goat cheese.
Use a toothpick to keep the bacon wrapped.
Bake in the oven for about 6 minutes.
Remove to a plate covered with a few layers of paper towels to catch the grease.
Can be eaten warm or at room temperature. I'm not even mad at the cold ones. It's all good. If you don't mind a little gristle, you can use uncooked bacon. The flavor is a bit stronger, but sometimes you end up with fatty parts that feel a bit rubbery. I prefer to use pre-cooked bacon.
