Bacon Makes Everything Better.

Blue Cheese Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Dates.

I made these as an appetizer on Christmas and they were a big hit. You can’t go wrong with bacon—bacon makes everything taste better! I decided to jazz them up a bit by stuffing them with blue cheese. The blue cheese adds an unexpected zestiness. They are so easy to make and are always a crowd-pleaser.

Note: Since I made enough dates for 15 people, I scaled the recipe down for this post.

Serves ~5-7 people.

Ingredients:

  • 20 dried, pitted, whole dates (you can find at Whole Foods)
  • 1/8 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 10 slices of high-quality bacon

Begin by stuffing the dates with a small pinch of blue cheese. The dates have a small hole through the center where the pit was taken out, so you can push a small amount of cheese into that. After the dates are stuffed, cut each piece of bacon in half to create 2 smaller pieces. Wrap each date with a piece of bacon and put a toothpick through the center to hold the bacon on. Line them up on a non-stick baking sheet and cook in the oven on 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until the bacon is browned and crispy.
