Everything tastes better with bacon, and dates are no exception! This appetizer is super easy to make and can be prepared before a party, so your guests will be munching on the salty, sweet, and oh-so-satisfying bite-sized, bacon-wrapped dates the second they arrive at your home. Straight from the oven, these apps are molten hot — be sure to allow time for them to cool.
  • 1 bag (or more) of Made In Nature Organic Deglet Noor Dates
  • 1/4 C of goat cheese
  • 1/2 package of bacon
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°.
  2. Open the slit in the unpitted date lengthwise and stuff each one with 1/2 teaspoon of the goat cheese. Pinch the dates closed.
  3. Wrap each date securely in a piece of bacon and arrange the dates, seam side down, on a wire rack set on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake the stuffed dates for about 20 minutes, or until the bacon is browned and crisp; turn each date after 10 minutes. Serve the stuffed dates warm or at room temperature.
