  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha hot sauce (more or less, to desired level of spiciness)
  • 12 pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 6 slices bacon cut in half


  • Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  • In a small bowl, make the glaze by stirring together the honey, lime juice, and sriracha.
  • Stuff about a teaspoon of the crumbled blue cheese inside one of the dates and squeeze it closed. Wrap tightly in one half slice of bacon and roll in the glaze. Place in a glass baking dish or glass pie plate.
  • Repeat with the remaining dates, and if you have any extra glaze, pour it over the dates.
  • Bake at 400°F for 15-20 minutes, or until bacon is browned and crispy.
