Ingredients
  • 18 pitted Medjool dates, split
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 6 oz. Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup Parmesan Reggiano cheese, grated
  • 6 oz. Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/2 lb. Italian ham, thinly sliced

  • Methods/steps
    Preheat oven 400 degrees. Using 1 tbsp. olive oil, rub each date to coat. Next gently open each date without breaking the spilt. Set aside. In a medium size bowl combine 1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs with 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese; stir together and set aside. On a cutting board, lay out Italian ham slices. Add to date center 1-1 1/2 tsp. of Gorgonzola cheese. Gently press the date back together and roll Gorgonzola stuffed date in breadcrumb mixture. Dates will grab a bit of crumb mixture. Wrap each date with a piece of Italian ham. Set on parchment lined cookie sheet. Repeat until finished, and then bake. Cooking time 10-12 minutes.
