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!
Bacon Wrapped Dates With Goat Cheese
1 pound (16 slices) Petit Jean bacon
1/2 cup goat cheese
Cut bacon slices in half. Fill dates with goat cheese. Wrap a half slice of bacon around each date and secure with a toothpick. Repeat with all the dates.
Bake on a parchment lined cookie sheet at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
Cool slightly before serving.

I received a Bacon Sampler, with which I made these dates and the most amazing BLTs EVER, but all opinions are my own, of course.
