24 Terra Delyssa® Deglet Noor Organic Pitted Dates
6 ounces creamy goat cheese
12 slices thinly sliced bacon, cut in half
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or to taste)
Salt and pepper (to taste)
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Stuff each date with goat cheese, then gently squeeze to seal. Wrap each date with bacon and place seam side down on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dates.
- In a small bowl, combine the honey, rosemary, cayenne, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Evenly drizzle 1/2 the honey over the dates. Make sure to coat the bacon in honey so that it caramelizes in the oven.
- Transfer to the oven and bake 20-25 minutes, until the bacon is crisping. Serve warm or at room temperature with any remaining honey and walnuts.
