Bacon Wrapped & Blue Cheese Stuffed Dates




  • 24 pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free blue cheese. Try Costello Blue Cheese.
  • 8-12 slices of bacon
  • 24 wooden toothpicks


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Slice the dates along the side so that they open flat for stuffing. Fill the date with about a teaspoon (more or less to taste) of blue cheese.
  3. Wrap it with a slice of bacon. Make sure that the blue cheese opening is completely sealed and the bacon overlaps underneath. Seal the stuffed date with a toothpick, and arrange (seam side down) on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dates.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the bacon is cooked and the cheese is lightly browned. Turn each date after 10 minutes.
  5. Remove and drain on a paper towel. Serve warm.
