  • 12 strips bacon, cut in half
  • 24 pitted dates
  • 1/4 pound Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, cut into very small cubes


Servings 10


Step 1

Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until it has rendered some fat and begins to turn translucent; don't let it brown at all. Remove from the pan and drain thoroughly on paper towels.

Make a slit in each date and stuff with a small piece of cheese. Wrap the date in a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place the wrapped dates in a baking dish.

*At this point, you can cover and refrigerate for up to 3 hours or freeze for 1 month, defrost before proceeding.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and bake the dates until the bacon is crisp, 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven, drain the dates of paper towels, and set on a platter for serving.
