Bacon-Wrapped Medjool Dates Stuffed with Blue Cheese and Marcona Almonds

© Katherine Stetson

Serve these treats with cocktail picks as an appetizer or nestled atop a Mesclun Salad dressed with a light vinaigrette.

For each date:

  • 1 jumbo Medjool date
  • ½ slice bacon
  • 1 teaspoon (or more) blue cheese
  • 2 Marcona Almonds

Remove the pit from the date and stuff the cavity with the blue cheese.  Wedge in the two almonds and wrap snugly in the bacon slice.  Place in a heavy skillet, seam side down and grill slowly and evenly until the bacon has crisped.  Remove form pan and drain.
