Total time: 
Serves: 24 2-bite dates
A crowd-pleasing appetizer, for a holiday party or any occasion.
  • 24 fresh medjool dates {they are refrigerated when fresh; ask at customer service if you can't find them in the produce section}
  • .5 log (4 oz) Chevre with Honey
  • 12 slices bacon, cut into 24 sections, about 4" long each
  1. Heat the oven to 425, and place a rack about 6" from the heating element.
  2. Using a paring knife, make a small slit in a date, and dig for the pit. You may have to trim off the end of the date.
  3. Remove the pit, and stuff about .5 t of chevre into its place.
  4. Wrap a 4" slice of bacon around the date, covering any place the cheese may ooze out of.
  5. Place the wrapped date seam-side down on a baking sheet, preferably one that has grooves (such as a broiler pan) to allow the bacon grease to drip away. If you can, tilt the end where you stuffed in the cheese to be elevated, so it doesn't leak out when it melts.
  6. Repeat with the remaining dates, cheese,and bacon.
  7. Bake at 425 for 10 minutes, flip, and bake for another 7-10 minutes, or until the bacon is cooked through and crispy.
  8. Serve warm!
