24 Deglet Noor dates, pitted
¼ lb. Parmigiano-Reggiano
24 (3-inch) strips very thinly sliced bacon
5 flat-leaf parsley leaves
Method: Preheat oven to 400ºF. With paring knife, cut small slit across length of each date. Cut cheese into 2/3-inch x ¼-inch rectangles. Insert piece of cheese into each date. Lay strips of bacon on work surface. Place 1 date at end of each bacon strip; carefully roll dates along bacon strips, wrapping tightly. Place bacon-wrapped dates on roasting rack on baking sheet; roast for 10-15 minutes, until goldenbrown with a crispy outside. Arrange dates in bowl with parsley leaves.
