8 slices Bacon 2 T Green Onion (sliced) 1⁄2 c Blue Cheese (crumbled) 2 T Reduced Fat Cream Cheese (softened) 1⁄8 t Ground Black Pepper 24 Medjool Dates ((around 16 ounces 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.
