Four ingredients. Thirty minutes. The perfect hors d'oeuvres.

Ingredients
or12 ounces Medjool dates (about 20)
or1 pound bacon (thin cut works best)
or8 ounces goat cheese, softened
or2 tablespoons honey
Preparation
1.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2.
In a bowl, mix the honey and goat cheese together until smooth.
3.
Make a pocket in the dates to pull out the pit, but don't cut completely in half. Once the pits are removed, fill with a small portion of cheese.
4.
Cut the strips of bacon in half, and wrap each one around one of the stuffed dates. Use a toothpick to hold the bacon in place.
5.
Bake the dates for 10 minutes. Rotate the dates so that the bacon cooks as evenly as possible, and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
6.
Let cool for a few minutes before serving (if you can wait that long!).
