I have no idea who originally came up with this absolutely fabulous concoction, but she/he must have been a genius! I first had bacon wrapped blue cheese stuffed dates at Traif in Brooklyn, NY, and I have been in love with them ever since.

If you’ve never tried these, then you are seriously missing out. I love serving them at dinners as a passed appetizer – everyone always loves them. But sometimes, I make them just for myself as a treat.

Bacon Wrapped Blue Cheese-Stuffed Dates

Ingredients

  • 14 pitted dates
  • 7 slices of bacon (cut each in half to create 14 shorter bacon slices)
  • 0.2lbs of blue cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Slice each date along one side so that it opens up.
  3. Fill each date with blue cheese and close it up. Wrap one of the half slices of bacon around the date and place in a baking tray with sides (as the fat from the bacon tends to run).
  4. Bake in the oven for 20 min before flipping the bacon-wrapped dates over (I found tongs useful for this).
  5. Bake for another 10 min (i.e. for a total of 30min).

    I think you could stuff a date with cat poop and it would still be a delicacy. These look so good. I have never been a fan of really strong cheeses, but maybe in a date, I would LOVE it. I bet it mellows the flavor out a little.
