Wow your guests every time. This easy appetizer combines sweet and savory flavors with a cream cheese center. Delight the most picky eaters and impress your visiting date fruit lovers.

Yield: 24 Dates


 • 8 Slices Bacon
 • 2 tablespoons Green Onion (sliced)
 • 1⁄2 cup Blue Cheese (crumbled)
 • 2 tablespoons Reduced Fat Cream Cheese (softened)
 • 1⁄8 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
 • 24 Medjool Dates (unpitted)


Microwave the bacon slices on high about 2 minutes to lightly cook. Remove from microwave and cut into thirds. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a sided baking sheet with parchment or coat with nonstick spray.

In a medium bowl combine the green onions, blue cheese, cream cheese and pepper. Using a sharp knife, make a lengthwise slit in each date. Spread each date open slightly. Remove pits. Fill each date with a rounded teaspoon of the cheese mixture. Wrap a one-third piece of bacon around each date and place on the prepared baking sheet with the filling side up.

Bake uncovered for about 5 to 8 minutes or until the bacon is cooked. Remove from the oven and serve warm at room temperature.
