  • 8 madjool dates
  • 4 slices bacon , cooked but not crisply (we used a local applewood-smoked )
  • 1/4 cup spanish manchego cheese , cut into small slices to fit inside the dates
  • 1 tbsp apple cider


  1. Cut the dates open along one side and remove the pits.
  2. Stuff with the manchego cheese pieces.
  3. Cook the bacon until done but not crispy. Drain. Note: the bacon needs to pliable enough to wrap around the dates.
  4. Cut bacon strips in half crosswise and wrap half a slice around each date. Arrange the dates on a platter with the bacon ends facing down.
  5. Warm the honey and apple cider together and drizzle over the dates.
  6. Garnish with toasted hazelnuts.
  7. Serve warm or at room temperature.
