Blue cheese stuffed bacon-wrapped dates by Kelly Travis

Blue cheese stuffed bacon-wrapped dates
1 (8 oz.) package of dried, pitted dates (about 30 dates) 1 (4 oz.) container crumbled blue cheese 1 (12 oz.) package bacon, with the slices cut into thirds
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Slice the dates along the side so that they open flat for stuffing. Fill the date with about a teaspoon (more or less) of blue cheese, then wrap it with a slice of bacon so that the blue cheese opening is completely sealed and the bacon overlaps underneath. Seal the stuffed date with a toothpick, and place on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dates.
Bake for 15-25 minutes, or until the bacon is cooked and the cheese is lightly browned. Remove and serve warm.
