Looking for party appetizers with bacon? Look no further because these bacon & blue cheese dates are the perfect party food. The are right at home on a casual buffet table or alongside easy elegant hors d’oeuvres. During a ladies night at my house a few months ago, one of the gals brought these over to share and I was hooked! You can’t eat just one. The combination of salty bacon, creamy cheese, and sweet dates is addicting!

You can make these and serve them at room temperature which is always a bonus. I recommend using Gorgonzola Dolce if you can find it. It’s a milder, slightly sweet {in terms of cheeses} blue cheese and so delicious. My next go-to blue is Danish blue because it’s also mild but flavorful. These are easy to prepare and don’t require any special measurements. Just make as many as you need!

Party Appetizers Bacon & Blue Cheese Dates 

  • Whole dried dates
  • Blue Cheese {I prefer Gorgonzola or Danish blue}
  • Bacon {I like to use Center cut}

Cook bacon to about half done and remove; drain on a paper towel and pat off excess grease.

Cut dates down the middle but not all the way through, so you have a “boat.” Add a few crumbles of blue cheese inside the date boat, and wrap bacon around the date. Secure with a toothpick.

Cook wrapped dates in oven at 375 degrees for about 8-10 minutes, just until cheese is “melty.”

Serve and enjoy!
