This is a very simple and quick appetizer idea for any occaision. We served these as one of the appetizers before Thanksgiving dinner.
20 dates, pitted
20 whole almonds
1/3 cup of chestnuts, roasted and cut into small chunks
1/3 cup of blue cheese, crumbled
Split dates donw the center and carefully remove the pit. Do not cut date in half. Stuff 1 or 2 pieces of roasted chestnuts down into the bottom of date, next stuff to the top with blue cheese crumbles. Lastly, top each date with a whole almond. Place dates on a lined baking sheet and bake in a 400 degree F. oven for about 7 minutes or until hot and cheese is melted. Let cool slightly before serving so your guests do not burn their mouths on the hot cheese.
