Bacon Wrapped Dates with Bleu d'Auvergne

Bacon Wrapped Dates with Bleu d'Auvergne


20 Medjool dates

1 tablespoon chopped parsley

3 ounces Bleu d'Auvergne cheese, cut into chunks

Small handful pistachios, crushed

10 bacon slices cut in half lengthwise


Preheat oven to 375°.

Cut slits down one side of the dates just large enough to remove the pits—careful not to cut entirely in half.

Fill each date with some chopped parsley, a chunk of Bleu d'Auvergne cheese, and a sprinkle of crushed pistachios. Lightly squeeze them shut.

Wrap a strip of bacon around each date and secure with a toothpick. Bake on a parchment covered baking sheet for about 15-20 minutes, until bacon is crispy.
