I love to entertain and especially enjoy offering unique and tasty appetizers. These have an intense flavour and are always popular. The components can be made ahead and just pop them in the oven as your guests arrive.

Preheat oven to 450; put rack in middle position. Line a shallow baking pan with foil. Slice each date thinly lengthwise. Stuff each with one Canadian Parmesan stick. Wrap with one piece of bacon and secure tightly with wooden pick. Arrange dates 1" apart on prepared baking pan. Bake for 5 minutes, then turn with tongs and bake 3 to 5 minutes more, or until the bacon is as crisp as you would like. Drain the dates on paper towel. Serve immediately as these are best when warm.
