  • 1 lb Manchego cheese, cut into 15 blocks
  • 5 Slices of bacon, cut into thirds

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Make an incision on one side of each date and insert a block of Manchego. Squeeze the date shut in your hand to secure.

Wrap each date with a pieces of the bacon and secure with a toothpick.

Place all dates on a sheet tray lined with a silicon mat or parchment paper.
