INGREDIENTS

About 1/2 pound dates

4 ounces blue cheese

About 6 to 8 slices of bacon, cut into quarters

Use the point of a sharp knife to slit dates open lengthwise. Pull out the pits. Stuff some blue cheese inside. Wrap a quarter of a strip of bacon around the date and skewer with a toothpick.

Refrigerate up to several hours.

Place on a rack over a baking sheet with the openings up. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes, until bacon is crisp and cheese is melted.
