Date, blue cheese, and bacon hors d’oeuvres
  • at least one box of pitted dates
  • lots of blue cheese, good quality and strong, it mellows, trust me
  • pack of quality bacon
  • wooden toothpicks
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Halve the bacon, one piece is too much, even for me.
  3. Cut the dates in half and stuff blue cheese into the pit holes on both sides.
  4. Put the date halves back together and don’t worry about some blue cheese seepage.
  5. Wrap each completed date with a half piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  6. Place on baking pan. Bake until bacon is done.
  7. Enjoy.
Three of the major food groups are represented here, fruit, dairy, and bacon. These are soooo easy to make and taste so good. No matter how many I make, they are always almost instantly gone. So, make a lot. Even the blue cheese haters love these, the flavor profile is unbelievable. This recipe is variable, so I am not entering the servings, cooking time, etc. You make as many as you want, so prep time varies. Cooking time depends on the bacon you use. Thicker bacon takes longer, super crisp bacon takes longer (I like mine on the soft side). Submitted by: "Virgil Huston"
