I'm not going to lie, this is a little labor intensive project, but the reward is well worth it. The combination of salty/savory/sweet is a perfect balance.
I had a party last night and ended up making 40 of these guys, but you don't really need to measure anything.
- Dates, pitted and sliced down the middle
- Blue cheese
Stuff the dates with a little bit of blue cheese and wrap with bacon, securing with a toothpick. I cut a slice of bacon into thirds.
Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven on a rack on a cookie sheet so the grease drips down into the cookie sheet. Cook for about 15-20 minutes or until bacon is crispy. Let cool for a few minutes before serving.
