Cambozola-Stuffed Dates Wrapped in Prosciutto

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 8 to 12

Rich, mild blue Cambozola cheese gives new life to a classic, sweet dates wrapped in salty prosciutto.

Ingredients:

  • 24 pitted Medjool dates, about 1 lb. (500 g)
  • 3 oz. (90 g) Cambozola cheese
  • 12 thin slices prosciutto di Parma, halved lengthwise

Directions:

Preheat a broiler.

Stuff each date with about 1/2 tsp. of the cheese and wrap a strip of prosciutto around each one. Arrange on a rimmed baking sheet.

Broil until the prosciutto is crispy and the cheese is bubbling, about 5 minutes. Transfer the dates to a serving platter and serve hot. Serves 8 to 12.
