Very nice combo of favors with the blue cheese, paprika and bacon. Even the non-date lovers ate these up as the dates become very neutral. Very good and will definitely make again.

You have to cook the bacon longer, not just 6 minutes per side; and cutting the dates in half will allow for more dates and you still get the FULL flavor-dee-licious! I used hot paprika on some & regular paprika on others, cut the bacon in half before wrapping it around the date, all great!!! Will definitely use this for my next appetizer at a party!
