  1. Soak toothpicks at least 15 minutes in water to prevent from burning. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Slice dates lengthwise through the center leaving one end intact; remove pit. Stuff date with blue cheese and close. Wrap a piece of bacon around each date. Press a sausage piece against one side of bacon and skewer the date through the sausage and bacon to secure. Repeat with remaining dates.
  3. Bake on center rack of oven 7 minutes. Remove from oven and turn dates over. Continue cooking an additional 7 to 9 minutes or until bacon is crispy and sausage is cooked. Serve warm garnished with parsley and orange zest.

*You need long toothpicks so the chorizo fits. The smaller picks won’t accommodate the chorizo.
