Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Cream Cheese

Got this interesting recipe from my mom. She was watching Emeril Lagasse make bacon wrapped dates on his show and decided that she would love to have this at my dad's surprise birthday bash. I have to say that these little bacon poppers were a hit!!! People could not stop eating them. I used Sunsweet california pitted dates, Philadelphia cream cheese and uncured smoke bacon. I omitted the almond. I also stuck toothpicks inside of them so the guest could pick them up. Great recipe mom...the birthday guest ate all of them!!!

1 bag of SunSweet California Pitted Dates
Philadelphia Cream Cheese
Uncured Bacon (Your choice of Bacon)

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Stuff dates with cream cheese, then cut the bacon in half and wrap the bacon around each date and secure the bacon with a toothpick if desired. Arrange dates, bacon seam down and 1 inch apart in a baking pan. Bake until the bacon is crispy. Serve immediately!!!

  4. Yum. This looks so fantastic. I use to serve these at a country club I use to work at. (Between you and me..I use to sneak a few)

  5. That looks really good and easy to make. I really like the combination of bacon and sweet. That's why bacon candy bars are so tasty.
