Equipment

  • baking sheet
  • wire rack
  • chef's knife
  • cutting board

Ingredients

  • 32 large Medjool dates
  • 32 roasted whole almonds
  • ½ cup goat cheese
  • 16 slices bacon about 14 ounces halved crosswise

GARNISH:

  • sliced green onion optional

Instructions

  • Place the oven rack in the middle position and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Set a wire rack on a baking sheet that has been covered with foil; set aside.
  • Use a knife to cut a slit lengthwise into a date and take out the pit. Gently stretch the opening you just cut to allow room for the stuffing.
  • Stuff the dates with 1 almond and about 1 teaspoon full of goat cheese each.
  • Pinch the dates closed and wrap each date in a piece of bacon before setting them on the baking sheet. The bacon should be wrapped tightly.
  • Bake the stuffed dates for 25-30 minutes, or until the bacon is browned and crisp. Turn each date halfway through baking.
  • Place the dates on a serving platter and sprinkle with sliced green onions (optional).
  • Serve the dates warm or at room temperature.
