If you love flavorful and delicious foods, this goat cheese stuffed date recipe is gonna knock your socks off. Topped with bacon and sauce!


- Ingredients -
8 oz of goat cheese (log works nicely)
5 slices of applewood smoked bacon

Bacon Wrapped Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates



Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Do your best to stuff dates with goat cheese. I used a chop stick to get in as much cheese as I could.

Then lay out bacon slices on a plate and roll a date in a slice until it is wrapped completely. Slice the bacon and repeat until all of the dates are wrapped.

Put on parchment paper covered sheet pan in oven for approximately 12 minutes or until bacon looks done to your preference.

While these are baking, add the balsamic, maple, and sugar into a sauce pan and turn burner to medium high. Let the mixture boil for a couple of minutes, then add in the corn starch paste and stir thoroughly. Turn heat down to simmer. Continue to stir until the sauce starts to thicken. Drizzle on top of dates.
