Made this exactly as instructed. AWESOME. Only recommendation: DO NOT USE CHEAP BLUE CHEESE!!! Don't use "Treasure Cave" or any other kind of blue cheese that looks dry or made for crumbling into a salad (I've done this recipe a number of times with different blue cheeses). You want moist blue cheese that can easily be shoved into a date. Something with a little stickiness to it. Otherwise, the cheese just crumbles everywhere and is difficult to stuff. The moister cheese melts a little bit more, so if you can't get the bacon entirely around the date, you lose some of it, but don't worry...it still tastes great...and most of the cheese stays in there. I don't bother with the toothpicks usually (I wrap the bacon so the ends are on the bottom) but tastes great either way.
