You can make these little goodies ahead of time, then broil just before serving. And you can use any firm cheese you'd like. I've made them with Jarlsberg and Fontina.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 32 minutes
- 1 package whole pitted dates
- 1/2 cup cubed Asiago cheese
- 8-10 slices bacon, cut crosswise into thirds
Preheat broiler. Broil bacon wrapped dates 4-6" from the heat source for 9-12 minutes, turning twice during cooking time, until bacon is crisp; don't let it burn! Let stand for 5 minutes, then serve.
