Sweet and salty. Cheese and bacon. What is not to love? These parmesan-stuffed, bacon-wrapped dates are super easy, super tasty, and will impress your dinner guests.
- 15 pitted dates (Medjool are good, but whatever you have)
- 5 strips of bacon, cut crosswise into thirds
- 15 “matchsticks” of parmesan or romano cheese, about the size and shape of a date pit (see what I’m doing here?)
Fill that sad empty cavity where the date pit used to be with cheese morsel, the wrap the date with a third of a piece of bacon. Place on a baking sheet with the seam down.
Bake at 350 for about 20-30 minutes, turning periodically so they get evenly crispy. I do it in a toaster oven and it works brilliantly, but you’ll need to use your oven if you make a bigger batch. If I make a bigger batch I will eat a bigger batch, so.
Serve warm and humbly accept praise.
