ROASTED DATES WITH SERRANO HAM

Food & Drink - - BASICS DATES WITH DESTINY -

Ideally you would use a Span­ish soft blue cheese such as Cabrales, but it is much eas­ier to find Gor­gonzola.

1 Cut 12 pit­ted dates in half, but do not cut all the way through. Open like a book and stuff each date with about 1 tsp (5 mL) blue cheese or finely chopped Manchego. Fold in half. Cut 6 slices of serrano ham in half length­wise and wrap a piece around each date. Place dates on a parch­ment-lined bak­ing sheet. Brush with 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil and bake at 400°F (200°C) un­til ham is crispy and cheese is melt­ing, about 10 min­utes. Serves 6
