"Natures candy" are what Medjool Dates are considered due to being one of the sweetest varieties. When stuffed with sausage and cheese and wrapped in bacon, these succulent treats are the perfect combination of both salty and sweet flavors, bursting with joy in your mouth. You can't eat just one.
Fun fact….Dates are a sweet snack alternative for health conscious consumers. Low in fat, and sodium, they contain no cholesterol, and are high in fiber and magnesium. Plus, dates contain more potassium than a banana, and are rich in iron!

How to Make Bacon wrapped & stuffed Medjool Dates

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a 9x9 baking dish with tin foil.
  2. Using a food processor or blender, grind the sausage until in small bits. Transfer to a medium bowl.
  3. Add the goat cheese to the sausage, toss to blend. Set aside.
  4. Slice open the Dates, without cutting all the way through, and remove the pit.
  5. Cut the bacon pieces in half so you have 16 pieces.
  6. Stuff the Dates with the sausage/cheese mixture, then wrap with a piece of bacon, tightly. Place in prepared pan.
  7. Once all the Dates are stuffed and wrapped, place in oven until bacon begins to crisp (about 10 minutes). Remove the pan and flip the dates to crisp up the opposite side as well (probably another 10 minutes). Remove from oven when done, let cool, and serve!
