Bacon Wrapped and Pecan Stuffed Dates

OK...this recipe is not healthy, but it's delicious. (There can be no doubt it's from Paula Deen.) This one is another favorite of my other half when we have a party.

Bacon Wrapped and Pecan Stuffed Dates
Makes 30 pieces.

30 dates
30 pecan halves
10 slices bacon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Pit dates.

Cut bacon slices into three pieces. Place slices in one layer on a microwave safe plate and partially cook at full power for two minutes. Let cool slightly

Stuff each date with a pecan half. (You can gild the lily and stuff a small piece of blue cheese in with the pecan.) Wrap one piece of bacon around each stuffed date and secure with a toothpick. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until bacon is crisp. Place on a paper towel lined plate to drain and serve.
