Saga-Stuffed Dates Wrapped in Prosciutto

Photo by: Mark Ferri

Yield: 32 Pieces (recipe may be halved)

INGREDIENTS
  • 1/3 cup Saga Blue cheese, rind removed and the cheese brought to room temperature
  • ¼ cup whipped cream cheese, at room temperature
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 16 large, best-quality dried dates
  • ¾ to 1 pound thinly sliced prosciutto

Directions

Slit each date lengthwise and remove the pit. Slice each date into two equal lengthwise pieces. Combine the Saga Blue and cream cheese, and season with black pepper. Use a small spreader to fill each date half with the cheese, spreading it out flush with rim of the fruit.

Trim off any excess fat from each piece of prosciutto using kitchen scissors. If the slices are very long, cut them in half widthwise. Lay a stuffed date at one end of a slice of prosciutto and roll it up, enclosing it completely. Place in a single layer on a serving platter.

Notes

Timing is Everything:

The dates can be fully assembled one day ahead and kept refrigerated, well covered. For best flavor and texture, remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes to 1 hour before serving.
