  • 1 package bacon
  • 24-30 dried pitted dates
  • 4 oz goat cheese


  • Preheat oven to 400
  • Cut the bacon into thirds.
  • Slice each date vertically down one side and open it up like a book, fill with goat cheese, and close.
  • Roll each stuffed date in one third of a slice of bacon. Place seem side down on a foil lined rimmed baking sheet.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until browned and crispy.
  • Serve warm or room temperature.


Depending on how many slices of bacon in your package is how many dates you will get. I find there are usually 8 or 9 slices of bacon in a 12 oz package.
