I have had a few requests lately to post this recipe from the Cooking Party I had a few months ago. I posted a picture, but promised the recipe later. Didn’t mean to take so long!!
These are DELICIOUS …. Absolutely decadent – an amazing mix of sweet, salty, cheesy….and bacony.
Not sure if bacony is a real word but I did find it here.
See…if nothing, I provide you with solid reading material.
Medjool dates are typically in season from September through December. However, once you buy them they can be stored where it’s cool and dry for about six months or in the refrigerator for up to a year….pretty resilient little things, aren’t they?
Gorgonzola Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Dates
1 16 oz package fresh Medjool dates
4 oz package Gorgonzola cheese
1 block cream cheese, softened
1 lb bacon, cooked
Preheat oven to 400°. Using a paring knife, make a slit in the side of the dates and remove pits. Mix the cream cheese and Gorgonzola with a hand mixer until combined. Stuff each date with about a teaspoon of the cheese mixture. Wrap each one with bacon, seams down, or spear each one with a toothpick to seal. Bake for 20 minutes, turning halfway through.
If you’ve never had these, I promise they will become a new favorite.
Have a great weekend!
