How to Make Bacon-Wrapped Dates with Parmesan

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until it has rendered some fat and begins to turn transulcent; don't let it brown at all. Remove from the pan and drain thoroughly on paper towels.
  2. Make a slit in each date and stuff with a small piece of cheese. Wrap the date in a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick, if needed. Place the wrapped dates in a baking dish. (At this point you can cover and refrigerate for up to 36 hours or freeze for 1 month, defrost before proceeding)
  3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and bake the dates until the bacon is crisp. (10-12 minutes)
  4. Remove from oven, drain the dates on paper towels, and set on platter for serving.

    Thin shreds of any Parmesan would make an awesome garnish!
