Use a paring knife and slit the dates lengthwise, then the point can be used to "pop out" the seed.  Squeeze the ends of the date closer to form a boat.

Add 1/2 TSP to "Date Boat", then spread 1/2 TSP of crumbled Praline Pecan Bacon to the boat.  Place the filled dates on your chosen presentation platter.  At this point the platter can be filmed, refrigerated and stored for later serving.

Chef's Notes:

Also, the use of Creole Cottage Cheese is a definite improvement to just adding Phiedelipha Cream Cheese, the Creole style is less sweet and will not overpower the dish!   You probably will not find Creole Cottage Cheese outside of South Louisiana, I would suggest to use regular Cottage Cheese. 

 

A catering chef would increase this amount by many times factor as needed and store for future use.
