Blue Cheese-Stuffed Dates

Make these for your next party, and watch them disappear. If you’re not a fan of blue cheese, you can stuff the dates with soft goat cheese or a vegan cream cheese.



Ingredient Line: 
24 dried dates
Ingredient Line: 
¼ cup nutritional yeast or dried breadcrumbs
Ingredient Line: 
4 oz. blue cheese


Preheat oven to 375°F. Slit dates down one side, and remove pits. Place nutritional yeast on small saucer. Stuff each pitted date with 1/2 tsp. blue cheese, pressing sides together. Dip slit side of dates in nutritional yeast to coat cheese. Place on baking sheet slit side up, and bake 10 to 15 minutes, or until dates are hot and cheese is soft. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

bet these could be good...L, J

What does nutritional yeast taste like?

Mmmm, sweet and salty all in one...

Would you have to use the yeast ?

Dates are also delicious stuffed with a milder cheese like chevre and topped with candied pecans. Mmmm...

I've made these with Tofutti vegan cream cheese and a combination of nutritional yeast mixed with breadcrumbs. All of my omnivorous co-workers LOVED it (and so do I)!

I stuffed them with feta and they were delicious. I did not use the nutritional yeast or breadcrumbs.

sooo good!
