Blue Cheese Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Dates

IMG 8747.jpg

Ingredients:

4 oz package of blue cheese

8 oz package whole dates

16 oz package of bacon * Cut bacon in half and then long ways if it is big enough. I wrapped 2 to 4 dates using one slice of bacon.

Optional: fresh grated black pepper

 

Directions

To cook immediately preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.

Place each date on the cookie sheet leaving an inch between dates.

Sprinkle with a little black pepper if desired.

Bake 15 to 25 minutes depending on how well done you like bacon.

Serve hot – but they are still delicious at room temperature if they last that long.

To freeze, put wrapped dates in a single layer in a large baggie and freeze.

Thaw partially to bake.
