Bacon Wrapped Bleu d'Auvergne

Bacon Wrapped Dates with Bleu d'Auvergne

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

  • 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.
