Ingredients

1 pkg
(16 ounces) fresh whole dates
4 to 6 oz
gorgonzola cheese or feta cheese
1 pkg
(16 ounces) bacon, cut in half horizontally (making twice as many strips of bacon)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
2
Slice each date lengthwise so they open flat; remove the pit.

Stuff each date with one teaspoon of cheese and close.
3
Wrap bacon strips around each stuffed date so bacon overlaps; secure with toothpicks and place on the baking sheet.
4
Bake for 20 minutes, or until the bacon is cooked and the cheese is lightly browned.
Remove and serve warm.
