  1. Slit the pitted dates and insert crumbled Gorgonzola cheese.
  2. Dribble about ¾ teaspoon of honey on each date.
  3. Microwave bacon slices for about 2 minutes to partially cook them without browning.
  4. Wrap each stuffed date with a strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Put the wrapped dates on a broiler pan on top of a foil-lined pan (to catch the extra grease)
  5. Broil on low for 3 minutes until lightly browned and then turn over and broil for another 3-4 minutes on the opposite side.
  6. Place the cooked bacon-embraced dates on a paper towel to drain.
  7. Serve warm. These are easy, delicious appetizers served with wine. (I prefer a Pinot Noir).
