3-ingredient decadence…and the air fryer cooks and crisps the bacon perfectly; no need to fire up the oven!  Perfect party food, fabulous for fall, and fantastic as a starter with a simple salad.


4 ounces Boursin or herbed cream cheese
20 whole dried dates
7 slices of bacon, cut into thirds

Toothpicks or small skewers


1. Cut a slit in each date and remove the pit. Open each date and stuff with 1 full teaspoon of the cheese mixture in the center.

2. Pinch the dates closed and wrap a piece of bacon around the date, overlapping the ends of the bacon and securing with a toothpick or small skewer. 

3. Arrange the dates, in the basket of your air fryer, leaving space in between each stuffed date. Air fry the dates at 380ºF for 8 minutes. Serve warm.
