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.
