Bacon Wrapped Dates
These bacon wrapped dates are stuffed with goat cheese, covered in bacon, then brushed with maple syrup before they go into the oven to bake to perfection. A super easy and unique 5 ingredient appetizer!
- 20 Medjool dates pits removed
- 6 ounces goat cheese softened
- 10 slices bacon cut in half
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- cooking spray
- 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a sheet pan with cooking spray.
Use a small spoon or a piping bag to stuff each date with about 1 teaspoon of goat cheese. Press each date shut.
Wrap each date in a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
Brush the maple syrup all over the wrapped dates.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, turning occasionally, until bacon is browned and crispy.
