Prosciutto Wrapped, Blue Cheese Stuffed Dates
- 8 dried dates
- 2 oz crumbled blue cheese (I prefer Gorgonzola)
- 4 strips prosciutto
- honey (optional)
Slice the dates in half lengthwise and remove the large pit in the middle.
Stuff each date with 1/4 oz blue cheese.
Slice prosciutto in half lengthwise. Wrap each date with a half strip of prosciutto. If preparing in advance, you can stick them in the fridge for several hours. Just before serving, set the oven to broil.
Place the dates on a greased baking sheet, and broil for approximately 4 minutes, until cheese starts to ooze and prosciutto begins to crisp and brown. Drizzle with honey, if desired.
