“Have another?” he compelled. “They’re dates, but you stuff them with bleu cheese and then…”
He’d trail off into his explanation, which invariably meandered between whom he was bedding and odd antidotes about whatsoever sprung to his mind as he unwound his thoughts.
-An excerpt from Sewage In The Bloodline
The best works of literature stimulate all of the senses, creating a fantasy realm that is visceral and real. In the novel Sewage In The Bloodline, several recipes are explored as the story unfolds. While it is perhaps far fetched to hope for a novel you can taste to appear on shelves and Kindles anytime soon, I hope to more fully flesh the world created in the Sewage series by presenting recipes for meals featured therein.
I am deeply grateful to my dear friend PM Gower, for offering his assistance to me in the kitchen. I myself seldom venture in to the kitchen, as things have a tendency to explode into flames when I do, which I find rather inconveniencing.
Here for your gustatory examination is a recipe for bleu cheese stuffed dates wrapped in bacon.
- Medjool dates
- Bleu cheese
- Bacon strips (raw)
Begin by preheating your oven to 475 degrees
Start off by halving dates, making sure not to cut all the way through.
Remove the pit
Cut or pinch a small section of bleu cheese and stuff into the hallow of the date.
Now wrap the date in bacon.
Secure the bacon with a toothpick.
Set the finished dates on a greased or foil lined pan and bake for 30-45 minutes.
The finished product is a sweet and savory treat that makes a great hor d’oeuvre
