Warm dates with gorgonzola, bacon bits and toasted walnut - 12-/19/09

 

Need to make a quick appetizer?  Warm dates with gorgonzola cheese, bacon bits and toasted walnut is the perfect dish to serve when you do not have a lot of time!

This dish is from Spain and it is serve as a tapas dish.  What I like about this dish is it is different.  When you bite into it, you get the sweetness and chewiness from  the dates and then the melting cheese is oozing out, then the crunch from the bacon bits and the toasted walnut.  Try this appetizer and you will like it.

Any dish that has bacon bits is good for me.  

 

Preparation work..

Ingredients

Dates

Gorgonzola cheese

bacon bits

Toasted walnut

 

 

Make a slit into the dates  and remove the pit

Remove the gorgonzola cheese from the refrigerator and let it sit for about 15 minutes so it is easier to crumble it. 

Fill each date with about 1 teaspoon of the cheese. 

Place the dates on a baking sheet (oven is at 350 degrees) for about 6 to 8 minutes or until the dates are warm and the cheese is melting

Remove the dates from the oven and sprinkle the bacon bits and toasted walnut over them.
