This is a simple tapas-inspired snack that looks and tastes like it takes hours in the kitchen to prepare. Luckily for all of us date/bacon/goat cheese aficionados, it doesn’t. The melted goat cheese stuffing elevates the sweetness of the dates, which are balanced by the saltiness of the turkey bacon. Also, these travel well, we piled ours into a to-go container with a bottle of wine and brought to the park to see an outdoor local theater production of Spamalot. See the recipe here and pictures of the process below.
