I used HUGE madjool dates and they are so rich that I could only eat one!!! I stuffed half the dates with cabrales blue cheese and 2 marcona almonds and then stuffed the other half with manchego cheese and 2 marcona almonds. I had some serrano ham left over in the fridge, so I used that in place of the bacon which was GRAND and lighted up the calories and fat. I actually preferred the ones with the huge chunks of manchego over the blue cheese, but now I know!!! Served with some Pinot Noir (which I just realized was French). Thanks. ..made for ZWT5 Family Picks Spain for Team Las Sirenas.

Wonderful and intense flavours. One daughter -- who does not care much for dates or blue cheese -- even enjoyed these. We used ordinary dates and almonds. I forgot these in the oven for an extra 5 minutes and that did them no harm. This would be a great make-ahead appetiser -- with the baking done at the last minute. Made and thoroughly enjoyed for Pick A Chef.

I made these as a snack just for myself so I only made three this afternoon but I wish I had made more! These flavors marry so well together and it is so simple to prepare. Thanks MarraMamba

I've ALWAYS shied away from blue cheese, but using it the way this recipe calls for, I could happily eat these tasty little morsels & NOT see the stuff, so that was a definite plus! Loved the combo of salty bacon, the cheese & the dates! Your recipe is a great keeper! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits recipe tag]
