Moroccan Dates Stuffed With Blue Cheese

This date recipe is a fantastic hors d'oeuvre that takes minutes to prepare and can be served with champagne or a fine glass of white wine.  The sharp and salty taste of blue cheese combined with the sweet taste of dates makes for a scrumptious delight.

Serve while still warm and enjoy the crunch from the date's outer shell.  Appreciate the effects of baking dates and cheese together.  The date caramelizes and the cheese gets creamy.  Indulge in this combination of flavours!

A great addition to your cocktail party menu.

Other names for blue cheese are Roquefort, Gorgonzola and Blue Stilton.

Blue Cheese

1.  Slit open one side of the date and remove its pit.
2.  Once pit is removed, fill with a piece of Blue cheese and fold the date closed.
3.  Bake on a cookie sheet at 350°F for about 12 to 15 minutes  (Just enough time for the cheese to melt.  Careful not to burn)

You can make this recipe with Brie cheese too.  It's also very good.

Note:  Line your baking sheet with foil to avoid having to scrub off melted cheese 


  1. I'm making this for my next dinner party!

  2. Wow, I've never thought of this combination. I have always dates in my refrigerator and bleu cheese in my freezer. Thanks
