Roquefort stuffed bacon wrapped dates

I absolutely LOVE the combination of salty and sweet...and bacon wrapped dates is exactly that. I stuffed these babies with roquefort cheese and it was soooooooo good. What could be better then stinky cheese wrapped in bacon. Although, I was health conscious and blotted off the grease after that made me feel a little better about eating them.

This is more of a method then a recipe. You simply take a fresh date, remove the pit then stuff it with your favorite cheese. If you're really bold, you can stuff the ENTIRE date with as much cheese as you could possibly fit in there. I went the skinny route and just put a little cheese in it. Cut bacon in half or in thirds and wrap it around the date and secure with a toothpick. Put them on a baking sheet (broiler pan is better if you have one) and put them under the broiler for about 10 minutes, rotating every few minutes. Make sure you watch them carefully since they do tend to burn a bit. You can change the recipe and substitute any fruit or cheese you wanted. Fresh figs stuffed with brie and wrapped in bacon would be excellent too. Oooh, I'm craving one right now. Must stop blogging and make one. Enjoy....num!!!
