Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF (190ºC). With a sharp knife slice the dates lengthwise to create an opening and remove the pit.

2. Stuff a small amount of cheese into the cavity and press the sides together to close.

3. Wrap each date with a slice of bacon and arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 8-10 minutes.

4. Return the dates so they bake evenly for another 5-8 minutes, until crisp and browned to your liking. Occasionally you can absorb bacon fat from the pan with a paper towel to avoid spilling.

5. Remove from the oven, skewer each date with a toothpick and place on a plate lined with paper towel. Allow to drain for 5 minutes before transferring to a serving platter. You can serve with a spicy sauce to dip.
