STUDIO CITY (KCAL9) — Try some summertime skewers!

Chef Chris Brugler of Chris Brugler Catering stopped by KCAL9 Monday to show viewers how to make fun summer meals on a stick!


Makes 2 servings

6 slices of bacon

6 pitted Medjool Dates

6 – 1 inch sticks of Manchego cheese

Maple syrup to drizzle

  1. Pre – heat oven to 400 F degrees.
  2. Place the bacon on a sheet tray and par cook for 3 minutes on each side. (You want the bacon to be flexible, but no longer raw). Place the bacon on a plate with a paper towel to absorb excess grease and cool.
  3. Slice each date in half and place the cheese in the center, then wrap ½ piece of bacon around the outside and secure with a toothpick. Put the toothpick through the end of the bacon so the bacon doesn’t fold up during the cooking process.
  4. Place bacon wrapped dates on a baking tray. Cook for 8 – 10 minutes or until your desired likeness. Drizzle the warm dates with maple syrup.
  5. Let them cool for 4 minutes before you serve.
