New This Month


Don't let the sinister name throw you -- these bacon-wrapped dates couldn't be more delicious. Martha takes them to the next level by stuffing the dried fruit with pungent Stilton.

You can also use cream cheese or cheddar to stuff the dates.

    Stilten is not liked by so many that I know, so I use blue or something milder. I also add a sliver of almond and sometimes a walnut half. I love nuts y2sz

    Where do you get the nutritional information for these receipts. I bought "everyday food, great food fast" Martha Stewart Book. Does not have nutritunal information for the receipts.

    What temperature are these cooked at in the oven. I understand that the bacon must be cooked through, but it it takes @ 25 minures, what temperature am I to use?

    I loved these!!! Unfortunately, almost nobody at my party did. That just meant more for me and my husband who loved them just as much as I did. I will definitely make these again.

    Can I make these a day or two ahead of time and then just heat up??????

    I make these for every party I give! They are so popular I often have to buy the biggest box of dates I can find to make enough! I find that using crumbled Gorgonzola is also good, as it is more mild tasting than Stilton.

    Took these to a neighborhood party and they were gone in seconds flat! Big hit!

    I can't even describe how good these are. You don't even need to put cheese in; they are so delicious. I made these and TWO hardcore vegetarians gave in and ate them, because everyone was sighing with happiness. NOTE: It's definitely smart to soak the toothpicks, however I only did it for 3-4 minutes and it worked out great.
