Bacon Wrapped Cheese Stuffed Dates🎄
The ULTIMATE Sweet & Salty combo!
Perfect lil’ holiday appetizers that’ll dissappear quick!
These are really easy and fun to make, so get the kids in the kitchen to help!
➡️ Any soft cheese works here:
Goat cheese, gorgonzola, blue cheese, organic cream cheese etc. Use your favorite.
We eat bacon a few times each month at our house because it’s something we (REALLY) enjoy!
➡️ About the Bacon:
There are many high quality bacon options available these days. Look for nitrate-free, and humanly raised if possible. Always read the ingredients so you know what you’re really buying.
On occasion we do enjoy a creamy baked treat using REAL cream cheese at our house.
This might only happen a handful of times each year…but we sure do enjoy it!
My favorite brand of cream cheese is pasture raised “Organic Valley”.
I haven’t tried making a dairy free version of this particular recipe, as everyone in my family does enjoy dairy in moderation.
📣 If you have a dairy free suggestion will you leave it below in the comments to help out our strictly dairy-free #Crushers, pretty please? We’re aware that dairy allergies and intolerances are a very real thing for many.
📣 Let us know how your family likes this recipe throughout the holidays.
