Sisuile’s Bacon-wrapped Dates

4oz cream cheese
4oz blue cheese
1t garlic powder
1/2t black pepper
1/2 lb pitted dates
1 lb uncooked bacon
1/4 c balsamic vinegar

Preheat oven to 400. Cut bacon strips in half. Mix cheese, garlic, & black pepper in your favorite piping bag (I use a 1qt freezer bag, and then cut a corner off). Pipe into your into your dates – if they pitted them with a slit, this is easier, if not, it is helpful to use kitchen scissors. Wrap with the half-strip of bacon & fix in place with a toothpick. Place in pyrex or other 8×8 pan. Repeat, until you run out of bacon or dates. Bake for 15-20 min, or until the bacon is cooked. Pull out of oven. Immediately drizzle vinegar over pan. Let cool enough that people aren’t going to burn themselves, & plate. Makes 24-30.
