  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 400 °F (200 °C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small skillet, brown the bacon in the oil until crisp. Drain the bacon on paper towel.
  3. In a bowl, combine the bacon, dates, nuts and parsley.
  4. On the baking sheet, place the shells. Fill with the bacon mixture. Spread half of the cheese on top.
  5. Bake for about 5 minutes or until cheese has melted. Right out of the oven, top each shell with the remaining cheese.
  6. Serve with Port and Orange on Ice.


The Medjool date is a bigger and thicker variety, and is sweeter than the average date. We love it for its taste but also its soft texture.
