Warm Dates with Blue Cheese and Prosciutto

  • Author: Beth Djalali
  • Total Time: 0 hours
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


Units Scale

6 ounces sharp blue cheese

1/4 pound thinly sliced prosciutto


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. With a small paring knife, slit each date lengthwise and spread open just enough to remove the pit while leaving the date intact. Fill the cavity of each date with a small piece of blue cheese and fold the date over the cheese, pressing it back into its original shape.
  3. Cut a strip of prosciutto as wide as each date is long and wrap it around twice, enclosing the date almost completely. Place the dates on a sheet pan and bake for about 8 minutes, until the prosciutto is browned and the cheese starts to melt.
  4. Cool slightly and serve warm.
