Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Dates

Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Dates

bacon wrapped dates-1

After some fun food experimentations, turns out I am sensitive to grains. No bread, flour, etc. etc. for me. At the mustache bash shower, I wasn’t the only one with some gluten adversity, so it gave me the chance to stretch some culinary creative muscles and make something new. And by new, I mean new to me.

Most will approach these bacon wrapped dates with a bit of trepidation when they see them. Dates? Really? But I swear they are better than candy. (Says the person who has been known to polish off a tray full in a sitting!) If you want to share, you might have to nudge your guests a tad, but just know they’ll be gone once you do.

Assemble these the day before your party, and cook them right before serving at your event.

I love dates! I'm the only one in my house that does. This means these lovelies would be mine all mine.

I never thought I would love dates--but wrapped in bacon and stuffed with gorgonzola...well, you can't go wrong. Happy snacking, Sandra!
