Bacon Wrapped & Cream Cheese Filled Dates

Sweet and salty always makes for a delicious appetizer or snack, not to mention the bacon! These were as good hot out of the oven as they were cold right from the refrigerator as a snack. The flavor of the bacon went all the way through the dates. They are so good and perfect for your Super Bowl Party!

Slice the date on one side and remove the seed.

Fill each date with cream cheese, about a teaspoon.

Wrap one of the bacon halves around the date and secure with a wooden toothpick.

Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Place the dates on the parchment paper without touching each other. Bake in a preheated 400º oven for 15-25 minutes until the bacon is cooked and brown. Turn them over after 10 minutes.

Place the dates on a paper towel covered plate to soak up any fat.

Then serve!
