- 8 Medjool dates
- 8 marcona almonds, toasted
- 8 teaspoons of Valdeon or Cabrales blue cheese
- 4 slices of bacon, cut in half lengthwise
- 8 toothpicks
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Cut each date along one side. Remove the pit and replace it with a toasted marcona almond. Place a teaspoon of the cheese inside the date and close it. Wrap each date with half a slice of bacon and secure it with a toothpick. Bake in a 400-degree oven until golden brown.
