Yields: 10-12 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Difficulty Level: Intermediate


  • 1 container Odyssey Cranberry Feta Cheese
  • 1 package of Dates, pitted
  • 1 lb. Bacon, sliced
  • 1/4 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
  • Maple Syrup, to taste
  • Fresh Parsley, whole leaves
  • Fresh Cilantro, whole leaves


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Mix cranberry feta with bread crumbs, and blend well together. You want the consistency to be similar to pie crust texture or pea-size crumb mixture.
  3. Cut 1 lb. bacon into thirds. Open pitted dates and stuff with cranberry feta mixture, and close like a sandwich.
  4. Take stuffed dates and wrap in a third piece of bacon. Pierce date with toothpick to hold together. Wrap remaining dates. Once wrapped, place bacon wrapped dates on a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and paste with maple syrup. Place back in oven for 3-5 minutes. Once bacon appears crispy remove from oven.
  6. Garnish with fresh parsley and cilantro and serve.
