Bacon-Wrapped Dates


  • 24 large Medjool dates, pitted
  • 4 oz. crumbled goat cheese
  • 12 slices bacon, halved
  • 1/4 c. maple syrup
  • 3/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp. finely chopped rosemary
  • 3/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper


  • Step 1 - Preheat oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with parchment and fit with a wire rack; set aside.
  • Step 2 - Halve dates lengthwise being careful not to cut all the way through. Place a small amount of cheese in the center of each date. Wrap a piece of bacon around each date making sure the ends meet underneath the date.
  • Step 3 - Place dates, seam side down, on prepared baking sheet. Bake until bacon fat is beginning to render out, about 15 minutes.
  • Step 4 - Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together maple syrup, red pepper flakes, rosemary, and black pepper. Brush each date with maple syrup mixture.
  • Step 5 - Continue to bake brushed dates until bacon is crispy, 15 to 20 minutes more.
