The Only Appetizer Recipe You’ll Ever Need: Bacon Cream Cheese Stuffed Dates (gluten-free, vegan)
to 18 pitted Medjool dates
cream cheese or Kite Hill dairy-free cream cheese
coconut bacon or regular bacon crumbles
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line large baking sheet with parchment paper.
To pit dates, cut a small slit lengthwise and gently remove the pit. This will leave a cavity for stuffing.
In a small bowl, stir together the cream cheese and bacon.
Insert a small spoonful of the mixture into each date.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes, until mixture is hot throughout. You'll notice it's a little bubbly.
