May 22, 2013 – These are so yummy!  The sweetness of the date and the smokeyness of the bacon makes a great combination.

This recipe came to me from a baby shower I attended.  It is a perfect appy for Baja as you can buy fresh dates everywhere!  We were also treated to these by Donna & George from California on one of our 28 Day tours in 2013.


Fresh dates – 2 per person?  pitted and slit down one side

Soft spreadable Cheese – plain cream cheese or flavoured, goat, blue etc.

Bacon slices or perscuitto – cut to wrap once around date

Slice down one side of date and remove pit .  Place a knob of cheese inside and close.  Wrap each in meat and place on baking sheet (covered with parchment or foil).

Bake in a 400F oven til bacon is crisp.  Turning once.  Approximately 20 minutes.

**if using perscuitto watch carefully they don’t burn – but cheese is warmed.

** you could partially cook the bacon before wrapping dates to shorten baking time.
