So the Super Bowl is this weekend and you need to know about these Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Dates with Dipping Sauce, because they may be the answer to your “what am I going to make?” question. Amongst the chips and dips, put these babies out on the table and watch them fly.
You may also make these with the intention to share and hide them for yourselves. After all it’s bacon. #nojudgement
Preheat 350 degrees
Servings: 30 dates ingredients:
- 30 dates, pits removed
- 10 slices of bacon, cut into thirds
- 1/4 cup goat cheese, crumbled
- 1/4 no-salt cashews, chopped finely
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 balsamic vinegar
Combine the goat cheese and cashews in a small bowl and mix until combined. After slicing open each date and taking the pit out, stuff with the goat cheese mixture. Wrap a piece of bacon around the date so that the date’s opening is covered.
Place the bacon wrapped dates on the baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes.
For the Sweet Balsamic Sauce:
Combine the honey and balsamic vinegar in a small sauce pan. Cook on medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let sit to thicken.
