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.
