Ingredients
  • 4 slices applewood-smoked bacon
  • 16 Medjool dates
  • 3 ounces fresh goat cheese
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil; set a rack over the baking sheet.

  • Lay the bacon out on the rack. Transfer to the oven and bake until cooked but not crispy, 12 to 15 minutes. Let the bacon cool for about 5 minutes before cutting into 1/2-inch pieces.

  • Lower the oven to 350 degrees F. Remove the rack from the baking sheet; replace the aluminum with parchment paper.

  • Cut a lengthwise slit in the dates, just long enough to remove the pits. Carefully remove the pits. Fill each date with a scant teaspoon of the goat cheese. Carefully insert a piece of bacon into the cheese in each date. Bake the stuffed dates for about 15 minutes. Serve warm.
