Only 3 simple ingredients create this very delicious hors d'oeuvres. Sticky, rich dates are stuffed with quality Parmesan cheese, wrapped with smokey bacon and baked to perfection. Amazing!

- 18 large dates (preferably Medjool, slit lengthwise and pitted)
- 18 pieces (good-quality Parmesan cheese, preferably Parmigiano-Reggiano, each about 1 by 1/4 inch)
- 6 slices bacon (good-quality, smoked, cut crosswise into thirds)
Position an oven rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
Insert a piece of Parmesan into each date. Then, wrap each date with 1 piece of bacon, securing it with a wooden toothpick. Arrange the dates 1 inch apart in a shallow baking pan. Bake for 5 minutes. Then, using tongs, turn the dates over. Continue baking until the bacon is crisp, 5 to 6 minutes longer.
With the tongs, transfer the dates to paper towels to drain, carefully patting them dry with more paper towels. Serve immediately.
