Found this recipe in the Kraft newsletter a few months ago and had to try them. I love the combination of salty and sweet. My guest and family love them during one of our gatherings here at the house.

Ingredients

16
dates
2
ounces of mild feta cheese
8
slices of bacon, cut in half
parsley for garnish, optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

Remove and discard pits.
4
Cut cheese into 16 (1 1/4 inch) sticks.
5
Stuff each date with cheese.
6
Wrap 1 bacon piece around each date, completely enclosing cheese. Secure with a tooth pick that has been soaked in water to prevent burning.
7
Place on rack of broiler pan or cookie sheet lined with non-stick foil.
8
Place in oven and bake for 14 to 15 minutes or until bacon is crisp, turning over after 8 minutes making sure all sides of bacon are crisp.
9
When bacon is crisp on all sides, remove from oven to cool for 5 minutes.
10
Transfer to serving dish and serve warm or at room temperature.

*The reason for buying dates with the pits in them is: I bought some pitted dates and thought I would save some time, but they all tore apart when I tried to put the cheese in them.
