I admit it - these are a total weakness for me. I don't know what it is, but wow! I love Blue Cheese Stuffed Dates Wrapped in Bacon.
So, what's it in?

- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Slice dates in half, and open them up. Take out the seed in the middle. Pinch off pieces of blue cheese, and place them into the center of the dates. Close the halves of the dates, and wrap a 1/3-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.
- 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
And I will admit, it's supposed to be a party food. But sometimes, I just make them for me. Pull out just about 1/2 dozen dates, and cut up enough bacon for it. Voila -- all for me. I've also made it with goat cheese - also good. But blue cheese is the best.
I know I should be ashamed, but I LOVE IT!
