Servings: 12 dates
Author: The Modern Nonna
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 12 pitted Medjool dates
  • 12 teaspoons of any creamy cheese, Brie, Boursin, Blue, Camembert, are all wonderful
  • 12 pieces of any thin bacon
  • maple syrup or hot honey for the glaze
  • chopped nuts are optional


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F. Take each date and cut a slit down the middle. Your knife shouldn’t allow you to go all the way through as the pit will be in the way. Open up the date and discard the pit.
  • Fill each date with any creamy cheese you love. You are more than welcome to add chop nuts of choice as well. You can use brie cheese, Boursin cheese, goat cheese or anything you enjoy. Take a piece of thin bacon and cut it into 3 pieces. This recipe works well with a bacon that’s thin not too thick so please try to choose a thinner one at the store.
  • Wrap a piece of bacon around the date and take some hot honey or maple syrup and brush it on. Place the seam side down of the dates onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 375F for 15-20 minutes or until they are golden on the bottom.
  • Flip them and let the other side cook for 4-5 minutes or until caramelized. These are best served the same day but you are more than welcome to prep them the night before and just bake them the following day. Enjoy and don’t forget to share this recipe with your loved ones.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
