This recipe is absolutely delicious. We made it for Superbowl Sunday and it was a hit!
12 bacon strips
36 pitted dates
2/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
Cut each bacon strip into thirds. In a large skillet, cook bacon in batches over medium heat until partially cooked by not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain; keep warm.
Carefully cut a slit in the center of each date; fill with blue cheese. Wrap a bacon piece around each stuffed date; secure with wooden toothpicks.
Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes or until bacon is crisp.
