This is the ultimate sweet and salty combo! You get tanginess from the cheese and sticky sweetness from the dates all wrapped in a crispy, salty bacon blanket.
Swap option: Substitute another preferred cheese like goat or brie for the blue cheese.
- 4 ounces blue cheese
- 16 pitted dates
- 8 slices bacon, cut in half
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Use a small spoon to stuff a small amount of cheese inside each date, pressing it closed. Wrap each date with 1/2 bacon strip and secure in place with a toothpick.
3. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake 10 minutes on one side, then turn over and bake about 5-10 more minutes or until bacon is crisp. Serve hot.
