Easy Appetizer with Dates and Bacon
I love appetizers. This is the story behind this recipe. I went on a date with my husband to a tapas bar. I ordered these and then I had to order another plate. They were so good I couldn’t believe that they were so easy to make. These easy goat cheese appetizers can be made with turkey bacon or with normal bacon. I made mine with turkey bacon because that is what my son likes.

You will need to remove the pits from the dates.
This is how I do it. I put the spoon in the date and then I pull it out.

Then you place a toothpick through the date.
