    JanuaryBride's Note:

    These are delightful, easy appetizers. Adapted from a recipe I found on As the recipe states, these are the perfect party starter served up with a glass of sparkling wine. These are also on the menu at a St. Louis tapas restaurant as a desert. . .interesting thought! These are very rich, so plan on 2 per person. One more note, these CAN be made without bacon if need be for a special diet.

      These were excellent. I was a bit sceptical about the sweetness of the dates, but was pleasantly surprised. The Manchego didn't do a lot for me, but held up well on the grill. I think a nice Asiago might be my next choice. Thanks for posting!

      Great cocktail party savory-sweet tapas. My only difficulty was my oddball broiler, designed to discourage use. As an experiment, I tried this as well with Calimyrna figs, and marinated one date and one fig in Heitz Cellar Grignolino Port prior to broiling. The dates were much easier to wrap with bacon, and the date held its form well after marination. The figs tasted great, but did not present as well. Served them with Heitz Cellar Girgnolino Port and Killer Sangria; the Port was better. Thank you for sharing this recipe, January Bride. Made for the Bodacious Brickhouse Babes for ZWT5.

      These were amazing! I made them for ZWT5-Spain/Portugal and served them with Fruity Sangria With a Kick. Perfect together! Thanks for a great appetizer that I'll make many more times. :-)
