A simple, classic appetizer--dates stuffed with gorgonzola cheese and almonds then baked with bacon until crisp.

  • Servings: 32

Ingredients:

1 lb Thick Sliced Bacon, cut in half
1 lb Pitted Dates
½ lb Roasted Almonds
4 oz Gorgonzola Cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice dates in half and open them up. Pinch off a piece of cheese, wrap it around an almond, and place into center of date. Close halves of dates and wrap a half slice of bacon around the outside. Arrange in a baking dish, or baking sheet with sides, to catch any grease.

Bake 30-40 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Turn dates after first 20 minutes for even cooking.
