Mass Weight Volume Number Material Notes
15 dates, pitted I used Medjool dates.
blue cheese, crumbled
5 slices bacon, cut into thirds


  1. Gather all materials.
  2. Stuff dates with blue cheese. As I stuffed the dates, I found it easier to tear the date on one side and then roll it around the cheese, but that's probably because I tried to overstuff the dates.
  3. Wrap each stuffed date with bacon. I sliced each piece of bacon into three pieces, and each piece was just the right size to wrap around the dates. You can also further secure the bacon with a skewer or toothpick, but I was either too lazy or too efficient to do that. :P
  4. Bake at 400F until the bacon crisps up a bit and the cheese gets melty.
