Bacon Wrapped Cheese Stuffed Dates. Salty, Sweet, and Savory!

This appetizer is the ultimate combination of salty, sweet, and savory! Warning: This recipe fits no known healthy diet

It recieved this gem from my sister-in-law (thanks Nat!) and am passing it on to you here!

Bacon Wrapped Cheese Stuffed Dates


  • 1lb bacon strips
  • 1 box pitted dates (trust me, get the pitted ones and save 30-45 min)
  • 1 package of your favorite stinky cheese (blue cheeses and asagiago work best in my experience)
  • 1 box wooden tooth picks (I used plastic once. It wasn't pretty)

Preparation & Cooking

1) Stuff pitted dates with your favorite stinky cheese

2) Wrap cheese stuffed date with a whole strip of bacon

3) Push tooth pick through the whole thing to hold it together

4) Pack as many as you can on a baking dish without haveing them touch

5) Bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 min until the bacon is cooked all the way through

6) Let stand for minimum 10 minutes before serving

You will be a hit with your family and friends. They will be loving you and cursing you in the same breath!

Yes, I'm old and want more creature comforts as I watch my Browns prepare for yet another sad season. I need all the comforting I can get!

Suggestion: Use wooden toothpicks. Try soaking them in water or Jim Beam, until they are completely wet. You are baking right? The Jim Beam was an afterthought. Maybe add him with a little BBQ sauce, heated up, right at the very end; last two minutes of cooking. Now that would really balance out the differing tastes. Looks like a good recipe. I will try it when my sister comes in town next month. I love it when guys cook! :-)
