Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Slice open the dates, and stuff each with about 1/2 teaspoon goat cheese. Top each date with a pecan, using the goat cheese to hold the pecans in place. Wrap each date with 1/2 slice bacon.
  3. Arrange the wrapped dates on a baking sheet. Bake 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the bacon is crisp and evenly brown.
  4. In a saucepan over medium heat, mix the balsamic vinegar and sugar until thickened. Pour over the dates to serve.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

These were great! I did not use bacon either. Yes if you don't like goat cheese, then don't make this recipe. I have never had goat cheese before and it is very smooth and creamy. I also have never had dates. I can't believe how good these were, everyone raved about them and asked for the recipe. I will make these for a Christmas appetizer.Very easy! yumyumyum

These are delicious! Super easy to assemble and great finger food for parties. I used thick cut bacon so I cut the slices in thirds and it was perfect. Definitely make as directed to get desired result. Don't skip balsamic reduction or bacon. These are both big elements of the recipe and these flavors blend in an amazing way. Leave one out and you'll get something completely different. I recommend moving dates to a paper towel after cooking to blot briefly before plating and drizzling with balsamic.
