Bacon wrapped blue cheese dates

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
  • Bacon
  • 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.
