Bacon wrapped dates are a great combination of sweet and salty. Made with just two or three ingredients and a few minutes, this simple appetizer is always a huge hit at parties. Sweet dried dates are stuffed with goat cheese (optional) and wrapped in bacon before being baked. A great kid friendly appetizer.
2. Optional: Add goat cheese to each date, cut bacon strips in half, wrap each half around a date, secure with a toothpick, and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet (with rims to catch bacon grease).
