Prosciutto and Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates

Prosciutto and Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates - Meatballs & Milkshakes

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┬áprobably my favorite. This is probably the recipe I make most often, and you’ll see why.

Prosciutto Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates

8 dates

1-2 ounces goat cheese

8 basil leaves

4 strips of prosciutto (or serrano 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.
