Dates are stuffed with blue cheese, wrapped in bacon and baked until crisp. These are delicious and very easy to make for a party. You can serve them at room temperature, so it is okay to make a few hours in advance!

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Slice dates in half, and open them up. Pinch off pieces of blue cheese, and place them into the center of the dates. Close the halves of the dates, and wrap a half-slice of bacon around the outside. Secure each one with a toothpick. Arrange in a baking dish or on a baking sheet with sides to catch any grease.
  3. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bacon is crisp. Turn dates over after the first 20 minutes for even cooking.

These dates are served at a downtown tapas restaurant in Atlanta; a friend of mine who raved about them taled me into trying one although I have never particularly cared for dates. I am so happy I did. These are wonderful, easy to make and your guests will be coming back for more - that is if you want to serve them to guests - I might be inclined to keep them all for myself. A good glass of red wine and you have a real treat! Note: the restaurant mentioned grills theirs to the point where the bacon becomes blackened on the top. Either way, if you grill or bake them, I suggest doing so on a rack so that they don't sit any grease that comes from the bacon.

I read all of the reviews before making this recipe and decided to try all recommended variations because it is such an easy recipe. I have to say, either way you go, any variation is delicious: blue cheese, ricotta, gorgonzola, adding brown sugar, wine reduction and almonds. BUT...I think my favorite is the bacon rolled in brown sugar, stuffed with smoked almonds and blue cheese with a wine reduction. It is much tastier with the brown sugar, believe me! I think my second favoriate was the dates stuffed with ricotta. But regardless of the cheese you use - you can't go wrong, I would definitely add almonds to the mix, as the crunch is very nice. Enjoy!
