Holy moly, these are good. We had something like this at In The Red recently.
Step one: Get dates. Costco has the best deals. But you have to remove the seed yourself.Next, push as much goat cheese as possible in the center. This is messy and it helps if you like to lick your fingers when you are finished. If not, find a dog that loves cheese. I have one that you can borrow.
If you are feeling frisky, or want to add something special to these, you can push in some walnuts or almonds. This was supposed to replace the bacon for the vegetarian in the house. Nothing replaces bacon. And she didn’t complain when the bacon grease seeped onto her dates.
Wrapping bacon may also attract the attention of the local dog. He seems to know when the cheese or the bacon comes out of the fridge. The dog can be very smart when he wants to be.
After cooking the dates, the house smells like delicious bacon and cheese. The most difficult part is waiting until they are cooled enough to eat. He may have gotten some bacon and cheese that night.
