So, get some dates, take a little knife and slit the side, and remove the pit. Then get a little spoon, dip it into the world’s most delicious roasted chile fresh goat cheese, and spoon that delectable dairy into the date. Clamp it shut.

Eat, and repeat.

The sweet, sticky date combines with the heat of the chile, set off by the slight tang of the earthy goat cheese.

Eat and repeat. Indeed.

That’s my newest, easiest, simple-yet-sophisticated appetizer. I’m making a small tray of them for Thanksgiving, and probably another tray when my friend invites me over for thank-Gawd-it’s-Friday drinks, and probably another tray when school lets out for winter holiday, and probably another tray for Christmas. And maybe yet another for New Year’s. Are there any other holidays I missed in there?

You should make them, too.

wrap those in bacon and then pick the dates to secure the bacon. Then dip the bacon wrapped dates in Kikkomans teriyaki glaze and bake til crispy – ohh laa you will go crazy!!
