Serves 8 Prep Time 12 minutes Baking Time 20 minutes

 

1 (200-gram tub) cream cheese
1 2-ounce can anchovy fillets
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced capers
          (To learn more, click Acquired Taste: 6 Facts About Capers)
4 green olives, finely chopped
black pepper for seasoning
juice of half a lemon

For the Bacon and Cheese Dates
manchego cheese
250 grams pitted dates
          (Know more, here: The Dish on Dried Dates)
500 grams bacon

 

1  Make the spread: In a bowl, mix cream cheese, anchovies, garlic, capers, and olives together until very well incorporated.

Season with black pepper, then add lemon juice. Mix well.  (Serving tip: This spread tastes better when made a day before serving.)

Make the bacon and cheese dates: Slice cheese into strips a little shorter than the dates.

Stuff the cheese into the hole where the dates’ pits used to be.

Wrap each date in bacon, then secure with a toothpick.

Put these on a rack, which is placed on top of a pan to catch the bacon drippings.

Bake in a preheated 350ºC oven for 20 minutes or until the bacon is cooked. Let it cool for a while before serving.
