This is one fanciful way to put some sass in your step on the trail. I actually opted to go the goat cheese route instead of the ever pungent Blue Cheese.

The recipe was originally featured on Vegetarian Times:

Blue Cheese–Stuffed Dates

24 dried dates
1/4 cup nutritional yeast or dried breadcrumbs
4 oz. blue cheese (you can also use goat cheese or cream cheese)

Making it!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slit dates down one side and remove pits. Place nutritional yeast or breadcrumbs on a small plate. Stuff each pitted date with 1 teaspoon blue cheese, pressing sides together. Dip the slitted side of each date into the nutritional yeast to coat the cheese. Place the dates on a baking sheet, slit side up, and bake 10 to 15 minutes, or until dates are hot and cheese is soft. Let stand five minutes. Wrap them up in tinfoil and enjoy on the trail!
