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.
Ingredients for easy goat cheese appetizer:
and Brandy if you wish. This is optional but wonderful!
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 stuff the dates with the goat cheese
I wrapped the bacon around the date and then I cut the bacon
Then you place a toothpick through the date.
Then you should place the dates on a tray.
Then I brush the bacon wrapped dates with brandy. I place them in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes or until the bacon is crisp. You may have to turn them over.
