Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Dates2013-06-20
- Servings : 16
- 8 slices bacon, halved
- 1/2 cup prepared scallion or chive cream cheese
- 16 whole pitted dates, cut open on one side
In a large heavy skillet cook bacon in batches over moderate heat until partially cooked but still soft. Transfer bacon with tongs to paper towel to drain.
Spoon about 1 teaspoon cream cheese into each date and wrap a bacon slice around the date securing it with a wooden pick. (Dates may be prepared up to this point 1 day ahead and chilled covered.)
Broil dates on rack of a broiler about 3 inches from heat until bacon is browned, about 2 minutes on each side.
Cool dates slightly and serve warm
