Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 18 minutes
Total Time 33 minutes
- 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.
