Bacon makes everything better right? Try this recipe and see how much better it can make your dates!
16 dates (pitted)
8 slices of bacon, halved slices
Goat cheese (can be omitted)
Cut bacon slices in half.
If you bought pitted dates, open up the date (you will find a small slit where the pit was removed). If the dates have pits, make a small slit on the long side and remove pit.
Fill with goat cheese (if desired).
Wrap the half bacon slice around the date and insert a toothpick on top to keep it together.
