Bacon Wrapped Dates and Prunes

I came across bacon wrapped dates appetizers at the church’s tea last year. I’d never had them before and my whole table liked them so much that we begged the waiter to sneak into the kitchen and bring us more.

My friend Debbie was in charge of the tea and is an excellent cook. She had used goat cheese as a stuffing, but as I raved about the dates to her, she remembered my French heritage and thought maybe Boursin would be better! Boursin! What?! That sounds heavenly!!

If you’ve never had Boursin you’ve been missing out. It’s a soft spreadable cheese full of yummy garlicky and herb goodness. It really packs a punch.

My friend was right. Boursin REALLY made a difference. It sent this great appetizer into the stratosphere.

Wrapping the prunes was my sister’s idea. As I was making the dates for Thanksgiving, she said she’d never had bacon wrapped dates before but she’d had bacon wrapped prunes. Well, it turns out, they’re just as good!!

The process is fun and super simple. You can watch the short video and print the recipe card below. 

These babies are ready for the oven!
