Print
Ingredients
  1. 18 pitted dates (she suggests Medjool, but I think a lesser pitted date is better for this )
  2. 18 pieces Parmesan cheese, each about 3/4 inch xy 1/4 inch
  3. 6 slices cured bacon, each cut into thirds (she suggests apple cured, but I have used others)
  4. stemmed parsley for garnish
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450F
  2. Pit dates if not already done (i buy the pitted ones)
  3. Insert a piece of parmesan into each slit.
  4. Wrap a piece of bacon arond each stuffed date and secure with a toothpick
  5. Place dates on a baking sheet.
  6. Bake for about 5 minutes or until the bacon on top is crisp.
  7. Using tongs, turn the dates and bake for another 5 minutes. - bacon should be crisp on this side too.
  8. Transfer dates to a double layer of paper towels to drain.
  9. Transfer to a serving platter, optionally garnish with parsley leaves and serve.
Notes
  1. These can be made 1 day ahead but unbaked.
  2. Cover and refrigerate but bring to room temperature before baking.
  3. Pecorino or Sonoma Jack can be substituted
