Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed With Blue Cheese

Bacon, blue cheese, and dates make the perfect sweet and salty combo. This is my go-to party appetizer, because it is super easy to make and always a crowd pleaser. I discovered it once at a friend's party, and I have been addicted ever since.

You probably recognize this appetizer because I've posted it on my blog before. I wasn't thrilled about how the pictures in the original post turned up, so I decided to do an update post. I love this appetizer so much that I had to do it justice with better pics!

Ingredients:
  • 1 package of dried, pitted dates (about 30 dates)
  • 1 container crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 (12 oz.) package of bacon (cut raw bacon strips in the middle if they are very long strips)
Directions: 
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
  • Slice each date on top, stuff with as much blue cheese as it can hold, wrap in bacon, and secure with a tooth pick. Repeat with the remaining dates. Simple right?
  • Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes, or until bacon is crispy. Usually i also like to turn the dates halfway through so that they crisp up evenly on all sides. 
  • Serve warm.  
Note: If you're taking it to a friend's house, bake the dates for about 10 minutes at your place so you are not traveling with raw bacon. When you arrive at your destination, bake for another 5 minutes or so until bacon is crispy.

  4. I will definitely try this. Bacon isn't just the perfect food to accompany your eggs or wrap around a scallop to make it twice as delicious.
