Ingredients
1 lb package of bacon
1 8oz package of blue cheese
1 package of dates (pre pitted preferred)
1/3 cup of brown sugar
Directions
Take bacon and cut strips in half. Take dates and stuff with blue cheese. Stuff enough into dates to see a little poking out. Wrap strips of bacon around dates and place the end of the bacon down on baking sheet. I suggest using a slitted sheet over another backing sheet to allow the bacon fat to drip off. This helps to get the bacon crispy. Once all dates are filled, wrapped, and placed on sheet, top each one with a little brown sugar. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. After bacon has cooked through place dates on a cooling rack. Make sure to place something under dates as the bacon will still be dripping grease. Cool for at least 15 minutes.

We have made this recipe for the majority of get together the past 4 years. Its our go to appetizer for just about any get together now. You don't think the ingredients will really work together, but they compliment each other so well! I highly suggest splurging on the blue cheese- the better the cheese the better the dish!
