Prosciutto and Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates

Posted by on May 23, 2011

These are one of my favorite appetizers, and they are great for a party because you can prep them up to a day or two beforehand and just pop them into the oven for 5 minutes before people arrive. They’re good warm or room temperature, as well. I actually used low fat goat cheese this time around, but you can really use any kind of goat cheese you want. Herbed goat cheese is also really good.

Prosciutto Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates

8 dates

1-2 ounces goat cheese

8 basil leaves

4 strips of prosciutto (or serano ham or speck)

Cut a slit lengthwise in the dates to remove the pit and stuff with goat cheese. Make sure to close them as much as possible.

Wrap a basil leaf around the stuffed date and wrap a half strip of prosciutto around that.

Bake at 375 degrees for 5-10 minutes, just until the fat on the prosciutto starts to render and brown and the cheese melts.

    Are those medjool dates? They look like they are, I don’t want to buy the wrong size.
