Medjool datesblue cheesethinly sliced pancetta (in stripsnot rounds, if possible, 1strip or round per 2 dates)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cook the pancetta until justtranslucent. Let cool enough to handle.
Cut a slit in each date, lengthwise, to pull out the pit whileleaving the date as intact as possible. Pull out pit, insertcheese and smush back together to ‘seal’ the slit you cut.
Lay a strip of slightly cooked pancetta on a cutting board,put the date slit side down and wrap the pancetta around it.
Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Place the wrappeddate on the cookie sheet so that the slit side is up (for lesscheese leakage) and the pancetta stays wrapped. Repeatfor each date, I mean it. Anybody want a peanut?
Bake for 10 min or until the pancetta is the crispiness thatyou like. Serve hot as (six) finger food, with napkins nearby!
