bacon, cut in half
These were great! I did not use bacon either. Yes if you don't like goat cheese, then don't make this recipe. I have never had goat cheese before and it is very smooth and creamy. I also have never had dates. I can't believe how good these were, everyone raved about them and asked for the recipe. I will make these for a Christmas appetizer.Very easy! yumyumyum
Goat Cheese just doesn't create a pleasant taste in my mouth.
This recipe is awesome!! I didn't use bacon and they turned out great!! Everyone loved this recipe even people that never tried dates before including myself!! You will want to eat all of them!! People thought I was a gormet chef how easy easy easy!! Try them for the holidays :)
These are delicious! Super easy to assemble and great finger food for parties. I used thick cut bacon so I cut the slices in thirds and it was perfect. Definitely make as directed to get desired result. Don't skip balsamic reduction or bacon. These are both big elements of the recipe and these flavors blend in an amazing way. Leave one out and you'll get something completely different. I recommend moving dates to a paper towel after cooking to blot briefly before plating and drizzling with balsamic.
Good. They were sweet. I'll have to get some saltier bacon. I didn't use the balsamic vinegar and sugar. I just couldn't imagine adding anymore sweetness to the mix. Would definitely make again! Thanks. Broiled 3 minutes each side.
These were wonderful! I used cream cheese instead of goat cheese though and skipped the pecans. Blue cheese would be a great mix as well. Enjoy!
I modified this recipe a bit -but it's become the appetizer I make when I want to "wow" people. I'm not a big fan of goat cheese, so I mix a good gorgonzola with cream cheese, and add chopped pecans to that mix. It makes assembly go a bit faster. I use toothpicks to hold each together and make serving easier. This is such a hit every time and I always have an empty dish. Do NOT skip the balsamic reduction.
These were AMAZING! I used turkey bacon and skipping the balsamic glaze completely and they were a huge hit at my Oscar party. They were best right out of the oven when the goat cheese was creamy. My guests loved them and not one was left. Will make this again FOR SURE!
