Parmesan Stuffed Dates – Junk Food #30

Stuffed Dates from Cook LocalUnResolution month…how we hardly knew ye.  Yes, that’s right, unResolution month is almost over.  There is but one post left after this one.  Ah, so many calories, so little time.

Anyway, I never meant for the “A month is four weeks, which is 28 days BUT January has 31 days so I need to find 3 more days worth of delicious but unhealthy foods” section of unResolution month to be a review of other bloggers’ ooey-gooey, delicious, and plain ol’ bad-for-you-but-still delicious recipes, but that’s how it turned out.  So why, fight it?

Today’s post comes from Cook Local a great food blogger I met on Twitter who seemed to really embrace unResolution month as a concept and suggested:

Parmesan Stuffed Dates Wrapped in Bacon

Yep, that’s right.  Cheese, bacon.  For the carnivores out there, this recipe is for you.  For the vegetarians, might I suggest some nice vegan bacon and vegan Parmesan?

Making the Stuffed Dates

Again, because this isn’t my recipe I’m not going to post it in its entirety here.  Instead, go check out Cook Local’s site.  I will tell you that you are going to need the following ingredients:

  • Medjool dates (these are the big ones)
  • A block of Parmesan cheese
  • Bacon (half a strip for each date)
  • Toothpicks

How you stuff them, well, you’re going to have to find out from Cook Local.

Anyway, enjoy the dates and come back soon for the very last installment of unResolution month.  After that, who knows what February will hold.
