bacondates

We recently tried these tasty little nibbles at a favorite local wine bar and they were out of this world. I decided I must recreate them at home, and they turned out fabulous. Serve as a cocktail party appetizer, or as the first course of a more elaborate dinner. I made two or three for each person, they are very rich, and could absolutely pass as dessert 😉

for 12 stuffed dates :

~ preheat oven to 375 degrees F ~

12 Medjool dates, pits carefully removed

3 yo 4 oz. gorgonzola or blue cheese

6 slices thick cut bacon, halved

When removing pits from dates, try to keep them whole. Fill with approximately 1/4 oz. gorgonzola cheese (I stuff them pretty full.) Wrap each stuffed date with a half slice of bacon. Secure with toothpicks. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for approximately 15 minutes. Flip dates and cook an additional 15 minutes, or just until the bacon is crispy.

Enjoy!
