8 rashers of bacon
8 dates – pitted or not pitted
How to make it
The combination of salty bacon, sweet date and savoury Bocconcino di Langa make these cheese wrapped dates totally scrumptious. Bocconcino means “little mouthful” so it seems the perfect cheese to use.
- Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan/Gas 7
- Lay out the bacon rashers
- Cut the goat’s cheese into 8 pieces
- Using a small knife cut through each date and remove the pit if needed, and open up each date
- Place the date at the top or bottom of the bacon
- Place the goats cheese inside the opened up date
- Roll up the bacon, securing it all with a toothpick
- Place all on a baking tray with baking parchment
- Bake for approx 15 minutes, turning half way through to ensure they’re even
- Serve the cheese wrapped dates at room temperature
