Bacon wrapped stuffed date on parchment paper.

Bacon-wrapped Dates


No explanation needed here. Fill dates with blue cheese, wrap in bacon, roast!


  • Medjool dates
  • Thick-cut bacon, uncured and from heritage pork recommended
  • Blue cheese, Roquefort or Gorgonzola recommended
  • Toothpicks


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Remove pits from dates by slicing open on the long side.
  3. Take small portions of blue cheese and stuff into dates, squeezing dates closed to keep cheese inside.
  4. Wrap dates in strips of bacon by placing date on one end of strip, and rolling upwards.
  5. Secure closed with a toothpick, and line on a sheet pan.  Placing an oven-proof rack in the pan will help them bake evenly.
  6. Bake 25-35 minutes until the bacon is fully-cooked and crisp all around.
