Manchego Stuffed Dates with Bacon and Smoked Paprika
I was so blown away by the Gorgonzola stuffed dates, I really could not stop thinking about them for weeks after. So I decided to make another batch, but this time following the original recipe and using Manchego cheese. I couldn’t believe how different the result was!! While the gorgonzola cheese took center stage in the first batch, the Manchego cheese brought out the sweetness of the date resulting in a much creamier smoother finish. Both were excellent in very different ways. I can’t wait to try it out with asiago, pecorino, or any other cheese for that matter!
