Bacon-Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Goat Cheese


Bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with goat cheese are a delicious and easy-to-make appetizer. They are perfect for parties, potlucks, and picnics. The dates are sweet and the bacon is salty, while the goat cheese adds a creamy, tangy flavor. These little bites are sure to be a hit with your guests!

Ingredients

  • 12 dates, pitted
  • 6 slices of bacon, cut in half
  • 4 ounces of goat cheese

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Stuff each date with a small amount of goat cheese.
  3. Wrap each date with a half slice of bacon.
  4. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until bacon is crispy.

Potential Changes & Improvements

  • For a sweeter appetizer, you could drizzle the dates with honey before baking.
  • For a spicier version, try wrapping the dates with bacon that has been soaked in hot sauce.
  • If you are not a fan of goat cheese, you could use cream cheese or another type of cheese in its place.

What Other Foods It Works Well With

  • These bacon-wrapped dates are delicious on their own, but they would also be great served with a dipping sauce. Try serving them with honey mustard or BBQ sauce.
  • They would also be well served alongside other appetizers such as chicken wings or mini pizzas.

Common Mistakes

  • One common mistake when making this appetizer is not cooking the bacon long enough. Be sure to cook the bacon until it is crispy, otherwise, it will be chewy and difficult to eat.
  • Another mistake is not letting the goat cheese come to room temperature before stuffing the dates. This will make it difficult to stuff the dates and will result in a lumpy filling.
