Bacon Wrapped Dates with Goat Cheese Filling

I start drooling every time I think about these easy to prepare appetizers that require just a few ingredients and are a combination of crispy, sweet, savory and creamy…need I say more?

Recipe for 6-8 people

Ingredients:

  • 12 dates
  • 125 gr plain goat cheese
  • 3/4 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 6 strips of bacon, cut in half lengthwise
  • Some honey to drizzle (optional)

Method:

  • Split the dates in half lengthwise being careful not to cut the date all the way through. Remove the pit.
  • In a small bowl add the goat cheese, chopped walnuts and rosemary. Mix well.
  • Fill the dates with the goat cheese mixture.
  • Wrap each date with the bacon and place seam side down on a tray lined with baking paper.
  • Bake in a preheated oven on 180 degrees until the bacon is nice and crispy.
  • If using drizzle with some honey as soon as they come out of the oven.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.

Buon Appetito!
