An easy recipe for Bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with Fontina cheese. Only THREE ingredients and they can be assembled ahead of time. This is a perfect appetizer for any party or holiday!
The first time that I made Bacon-wrapped dates, I was hugely suspicious of the combination of dates, cheese and Bacon. Which is incredibly silly, as I already know how amazing cheese and Bacon are together and EVERYONE knows that sweet (dates) and salty to together like peanut butter and jelly. As it turns out, the combination could not be more amazing. Between the soft, sweet dates, the creamy melted cheese and the crisp, salty Bacon – it’s pure heaven.
I made this sporadically for awhile, then two years ago, I made them as an appetizer for Thanksgiving the first year that we hosted at our house. Everyone went absolutely CRAZY over them. Like, could not stop eating them and fighting over the last ones, even as dinner was being served. Needless to say, Bacon-wrapped dates have become a staple at holidays and family get-togethers.
