Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Dates

Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Dates recipe pictures In mid January my roommate and I hosted a shindig to celebrate her birthday. We made a bunch of classy apps, served our favorite cocktail in a beverage dispenser and had over some close friends before we all ventured off to the bar scene. Some of the recipes included Bocconcini Arrancini, Mac & Cheese Bites, (delicious-one day we’ll post this) Baked Brie and these little guys…Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Dates.

Not to brag or anything…but all our apps were a total hit. Actually, I am going to brag.  What can I say…I know my appetizers (AKA I’ve had loads of experience eating them). These Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Dates were unbelievably delicious.

We decided on adding stuffed dates to our menu just on a whim. Until 2013 dates were not a food I knew anything about. Like zilch. I wasn’t even sure we’d be able to find dates at the grocery store. But we put medjool dates on our list…and voila…there they were. I’ve since bought medjool dates on several occasions because I’m pretty obsessed with these Vegan Granola Bars.

They were so easy to prep and they’re a fancy finger food to serve for parties of all kinds. Super Bowl Parties included!
