Slit the date on one side and remove pit. Take a small amount of blue cheese and put into the center of each date. Press a date into the cheese and wrap with 1/2 slice of bacon and secure with toothpick. Arrange the dates on a baking sheet and bake at 350° until the bacon has browned. Remove from over and either eat as is or put on an arugular leaf, drizzle with some balsamic or balsamic glaze and serve.
