Stuffed Dates Wrapped with Bacon

Here is the second quick and easy appetizer. I don't remember where I got this recipe since there is only 3 ingredients to memorize. I must have seen on Food Network. There is not much to say about it, it is easy as 1 2 3. Important : do not omit the bacon since it actually burns the dates and it doesn't taste good without bacon.

Makes 16
Preparation Time : 10 mins
Baking Time : 10 mins


16 small sticks Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
16 large dates
8 slices bacon


1. Preheat oven to 450F.

2. Cut one side of the date and take the pit out. Stuff a stick of cheese into each date and seal it.

3. Wrap half a slice of bacon around each date. Secure it with a pick.

4. Bake 5 mins, then turn dates over, bake until crisp, about 5 more mins. Drain in a paper towel and serve.

  1. I made a similar appetizer for New Years. Instead of cheese, I used almonds to stuff the dates.
