Dates with Goat cheese wrapped in Prosciutto:
I've said this before on the blog: I'm not a fan of dry dates and I surely don't eat them as a snack. Although I can eat a ton of chocolate and feel absolutely great (all lies, I always feel guilty), dry dates are on a sweetness level of their own.
As it happens, this is the second time I share a recipe with dates and I can now say that I've learned to appreciate and balance their sweetness in baking (as seen here) and now while cooking!
The trick? Mixing sweet (dates) with salty (Prosciutto and goat cheese). Just add a basil leaf in between, broil the batch for a few minutes until golden brown and you just made yourself some delicious appetizers. Full recipe found here.
A twist on a classic. This recipe from Martha Stewart (found here) is easy to make and a guaranteed home run.
Hope I made you a little hungry!
