    JanuaryBride's Note:

    Per Whole Foods' website, "To ease the party rush, make the filling for these dates a few days in advance, keeping in mind that the flavor will get stronger over time. For a vegetarian version omit the bacon and sauté the onions in olive oil instead of the bacon grease."

      Sweet and savory! you cannot go wrong. Who ever developed this recipe is brilliant. Taking 2 ingredients ie ( blue cheese and dates) that most people are not to crazy about and putting them together to make these delectable babies! I loved them and so did my guest. They are splendid with red wine. stop thinking about it and just make em already.

      Wow!! I made these this evening as part of a finger food, nibbles party. I hade my sister, hubby and niece all say what a combination of flavours, that is going to be gross. No way!! once they all tried it they said I never thought that would work but that is truly delicious. All my guests, that loved dates, have praised this combo all the way. This to me is a truly unique way to serve dates but totally delicious. What can I say these flavours just work and work well..I even wondered how this would turn out myself, but it is truly inspried, thanks for sharing such a fab recipe.. :)

      I followed the recipe to the letter and they turned out great. I cut the dates in half as I thought that they were too big to eat and hold a glass of wine. The best presentation I could come up with was an egg plate. Very easy to make with clear directions. Thanks for sharing JB!!
