  • 18 pitted prunes
  • About 2 1/2 ounces blue cheese (preferably Stilton or Gorgonzola)
  • 6 thin slices smoked bacon (about 4 1/2 ounces total), cut crosswise into thirds
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

    Cut a pocket-like slit into the side of each prune. Stuff each with blue cheese, about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon, and squeeze the prune around and over the cheese to seal. Tightly wrap each prune with one piece of bacon, stretching it a bit if needed. Hold the bacon in place with a toothpick.

    Set the prunes on the baking sheet and roast until the bacon is brown and crispy, about 20 minutes. Brush with maple syrup and return to the oven for 5 minutes more. Serve warm.
