Makes 24 dates


  • 24 Dates, opened and pit removed
  • ½ cup Great Hill Blue Cheese
  • 12 Applewood smoked bacon slices
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Stuff each date with approximately 1 teaspoon of blue cheese. Close the date and wrap it with ½ slice of bacon.

Place the dates on skewers and roast for 10 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Meanwhile, place balsamic vinegar in a small sauce pot and bring to a boil. Reduce vinegar until syrup consistency (5-10 minutes).

Serve dates with a drizzle of balsamic.
