This recipe for Dátiles Rellenos (stuffed dates wrapped with bacon) is one of our favorites at Modesto. Simple to make and people love them!
- 1 lb. sliced bacon, cut in half
- 1 lb. pitted dates
- 4 ounces blue cheese
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Slice the dates in half, and open them up. Pinch off pieces of blue cheese, and place into the center of the dates. Close the halves, and wrap a half-slice of bacon around the outside of each date. Secure with a toothpick. Arrange in a baking dish or on a baking sheet with sides, to catch any grease.
- Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp. Turn dates over after the first 20 minutes for even cooking.
