Yummiest little bite of party food ever? Bacon Wrapped Dates With Goat Cheese!
Sweet + Salty + Cheese = Goodness.
Such a happy combination of flavors, I promise.
Bacon is relatively hard to beat as a crowd pleaser, so naturally, these were a big hit at my house. My sister makes platters and platters of them for parties at her restaurant. It took me a little while to prep them, but that part could be done ahead of time for sure.
Just in time for Father’s Day!
