Bacon Manchego Dates

Makes 1 dozen
Time 20 min
Sweet, salty and impressive on the plate, these Spanish-inspired stuffed dates are a cinch to prepare. They're most delicious when very hot, so try to get them to your guests as soon after they come out of the oven as possible.
Special Diets:
Ingredients
  • 12 dried dates, preferably Medjool
  • 2 ounces Manchego cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 6 slices bacon, cut in half crosswise
Method

Preheat the broiler. 

Make a slit in the side of each date and remove the pit. 

Place a piece of cheese in the cavity of each date and wrap each date with a piece of bacon.

Arrange dates on a baking sheet and broil for 4 to 6 minutes. 

Turn dates and broil until bacon is crisp and cooked through, about 4 minutes more. Serve immediately.
