Bacon Wrapped Dates

One of my favorite appetizers to make is bacon wrapped dates. They are just so easy and always a crowd-pleaser. I've always loved these little guys when I've ordered them at restaurants and I was even more excited when I found the recipe in Shauna Niequist's book Bread & Wine.
Here is the super simple recipe:

1 pkg. of bacon
1 pkg. of dates (pitted)
4 oz. of goat cheese

1. Slice the dates in half and remove pit if needed.

2. Scoop a small amount of goat cheese into the date.

3. Cut the entire package of bacon in half and wrap a half-piece of bacon around the date.

4. Arrange on a baking sheet with foil, (for easier clean up) seam side down.
5. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until well browned.
* I turn mine halfway through.
* Also, don't use thick cut bacon. It makes it harder to keep the bacon wrapped around the dates.

So simple but so tasty! Enjoy!
