Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Dates

Can a party spread ever have enough bacon-wrapped delicacies? We didn’t think so….

While many bacon appetizers go full-on savory, we like the natural sweetness of this one. The contrasts of tastes is enough to inspire, but this one’s a symphony of texture, too. The softness of date with the cream of blue cheese and crunch of pecan all wrapped in chewy bacon can feel like a full meal in one mouthful. All is right with the world in that moment.
