Parmesan-Stuffed Dates Wrapped in Bacon

25 mins (prep 15)
3 ingredients
makes 6 hors d'oeuvre servings
We modeled these hors d'oeuvres on the little bombs of flavor that Suzanne Goin invented for her Los Angeles restaurant A.O.C. Each bite delivers a huge range of tastes — sweet, salty, and smoky — all at the same time. They're easy to make and completely irresistible; I can't think of a more appealing tidbit to nibble on.
