16 almonds
1/4 c. mild goat cheese
16 slices bacon, cut in half

Directions:
These are always popular and pair well with Champagne. I often double the recipe.

Preheat oven to 400. Cut the dates in half. Stuff each half with goat cheese (use butter knife to spread it in) and stick almond in the center.

Pinch the date half closed. Wrap each date securely in a piece of bacon and arrange the dates, seam side down, on a wire rack set on a backing sheet (or just directly on the baking sheet.) Bake for about 10 minutes and turn each date. Continue to cook for another 10 minutes until the bacon is nicely browned and crisp. Serve right away.

(The stuffed dates can be prepared one day in advance and refrigerated, remove from the fridge for about 15 minutes to take the chill off before cooking.)
