  • Step 1

    Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and cover a baking sheet with foil.

  • Step 2

    Combine the goat cheese and almonds in a small bowl. Mix well.
    Stuff each date with the goat cheese mixture - you want to stuff them so they are full but not overflowing.

  • Step 3

    Wrap a piece of bacon around the date so that the date's opening is covered - stretch the bacon if you need to. Place the bacon covered date on the baking sheet, with the bacon edges on the bottom.

  • Step 4

    Repeat with all the dates/bacon, spacing evenly on your baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the bacon is crispy, and remove from the oven. Let cool completely before serving..

  • Step 5

    While the dates are baking, combine the honey and balsamic vinegar in a small sauce pan. Cook on medium heat for 15 minutes, or until combination is reduced by half. Stir occasionally.
    Remove from heat and let sit to thicken.
