To make Williams Sonoma's recipe, cook 2 tablespoons of bread crumbs in 1 tablespoon of olive oil for one and a half minutes, stirring constantly. Cool the bread crumbs on a plate. Pit and stuff each date with 1 teaspoon of goat cheese, and sprinkle with the bread crumbs. Bake the dates on a greased baking dish for 10 to 12 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

To make the Whole Foods recipe, cook 4 slices of bacon and drain them on paper towels, reserving 1/2 teaspoon of bacon grease. Cook 1/2 chopped red onion in the grease for three to four minutes over medium heat. Add 3 tablespoons of orange juice, and cook for one to two more minutes. Crumble the bacon slices into the cooled onions, and mix in 1/2 cup of blue cheese, 2 1/2 ounces of Neufchâtel cheese and 1/4 cup of chopped pecans. Stuff 24 dates with the cheese mixture, and top them with 1/4 cup of chopped pecans.

To make Epicurious's recipe, fill 16 dates with 1/3 cup of herbed goat cheese, and wrap each date with a basil leaf and a prosciutto strip. Secure the dates with toothpicks, and broil them for three minutes.
