Gorgonzola-Stuffed Dates Wrapped in Bacon are delicious plain or dipped in soy sauce! Gluten free.
I’m officially an appetizer freak. Especially when there’s cheese involved. Add bacon, and I’m a goner.
When I heard that cheese-stuffed, bacon-wrapped dates are a thing (did you know?), I had to get in on the action. After all, Date-Nut Cream Cheese Bites have been a family tradition for decades. Why not explore other variations?
So, I baked Gorgonzola-stuffed dates wrapped in bacon…and dipped them in soy sauce for the umami win. Yes!
Who knew soy sauce would work better than balsamic glaze here? I sure didn’t. It must be the saltiness paired with the sweetness of the dates. (I rarely use any soy products, but keep soy sauce on hand, just in case. If you’d rather not use it, these Gorgonzola dates are delicious even plain.)
With all the planned and last-minute gatherings happening this holiday season (yay!), I’m glad to have another fantastic appetizer in my collection of family-approved recipes. Plus, this one’s gluten free. Make sure to check out the rest of my appetizers if you need some ideas.
Who needs dinner? I’ll just stuff my face with these Gorgonzola-stuffed dates wrapped in bacon!
If I don’t catch you again before Christmas, Buon Natale and Happy Hanukkah to those who celebrate! I wish you love, peace and joy.
