I strugged on how to rate this recipe because I'd never eat it again. Never eaten a date in my life so I wasn't at all prepared for the sugar rush. It was so sickly, sweet that I immediately had to drink a glass of water. Aside from the sweetness factor, the flavors were wonderful. I even added slivered, wasabi almonds and used beef bacon. I discovered that I may have used the Medjool date and should have looked for the Deglet Noor. Maybe sometime in the far, far, far future I'll attempt again.
I used the Deglet Noor dates, used a half and half mix of blue cheese (yes, the cheap crumbles) and wasabi almonds. I cut the raw beef bacon into 3 pieces, "painted" each bacon section with garlic paste, sprinkled with onion powder and cayenne. Rolled up the stuffed date, used a tooth pick to hold it together and baked in an aerated meatloaf pan. It was great and everyone loved them. I've already made them 3 times!
