"My friends and I used to make the traditional bacon-wrapped jalapenos at cookouts. I decided to sweeten them up a bit with dates and apricots, which are also more kid-friendly." —Susan Hinton, Apex, North Carolina
- 12 bacon strips
- 36 pitted dates
- 2/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
- Cut each bacon strip into thirds. In a large skillet, cook bacon in batches over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain; keep warm.
- Carefully cut a slit in the center of each date; fill with blue cheese. Wrap a bacon piece around each stuffed date; secure with wooden toothpicks.
- Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Yield: 3 dozen.
