Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Goat Cheese
Our freezer section is brimming with first-rate finds all year long, but during the holidays it really turns into what we like to call Appetizer Central. It’s where you turn when you don’t have time to prep lots of little nibbles, but still want your holiday party food to be interesting, conversation-worthy, and most importantly, delicious. This is where we shine.
Since their providential entrance in 2015, Trader Joe’s Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Goat Cheese have risen to the hors d’oeuvres occasion. These nosh-worthy nibbles begin with sweet, chewy Medjool dates grown in the desert region around Yuma, Arizona. The dates are dried, hand-stuffed with tangy California goat cheese, and then wrapped by hand in uncured apple-smoked bacon. You can bake them in your oven or cook them on the stovetop – either way, the bacon crisps, the dates warm and soften, and the goat cheese oozes in the most perfect way. Every bite delivers sweet & salty and soft & crispy, and leaves you wishing you had another. Luckily, each five ounce box contains about 10 pieces, so “another” is within reach, especially at $5.99 for each five ounce box. You’ll find them in our freezers, also known as Appetizer Central.
