We are having Thanksgiving dinner with my family this year.  So my mom and I have been discussing the menu.  Everyone’s pretty much set with what they have to bring.  So far, I’m making Fig and Prosciutto Crescent Rolls with Balsamic Glaze, a pull apart bread recipe I found on Facebook, and bringing an apple walnut pie.

But since there are still a couple weeks left until Thanksgiving, there’s always room to add just one more dish to the menu.  I know at least a few of us are fans of Medjool dates.  So I was toying around with a savory sort of date appetizer to add to our Thanksgiving menu.

Everything I used to make this recipe was ordered through Hungryroot.  All you need to make these dates is, of course, pitted Medjool dates, Sonoma Herb Sheep Cheese, and prosciutto.  Talk about an easy appetizer!

Curious about that sheep’s milk cheese?  If you like goat cheese, you’ll definitely like sheep cheese!  It’s not full of that “goat” flavor you get with goat cheese.  It’s not as tangy, but more mild in flavor.  The herbed cheese has rosemary, thyme, parsley, lavender, and sage in it so it adds a nice flavor to this appetizer.

If you’re looking for something small to nibble on before your holiday meal, these Herb Cheese Stuffed Dates with Prosciutto are the perfect appetizer!  Just cut the dates open, fill them with the sheep cheese, and wrap with prosciutto.  Secure them with a toothpick and serve!

The first thing we need to do is cut our dates open.  Take the dates and use a knife to carefully make a cut down the date lengthwise.  Gently pull the date apart to make an opening.

Now, we’re going to start stuffing the cheese inside.  Use a small spoon to stuff each date.  Then, close the date around the cheese.

Next, we’re going to take half of a prosciutto slice and wrap it around the date.

Secure the prosciutto with a toothpick, if desired, to keep everything in place.  Keep in the fridge to chill if not serving immediately.

While I’m serving these up as they are, these dates would also make a great addition to a charcuterie board!  You can even bake them in the oven if you want crispy prosciutto.  Just bake the wrapped dates at 375º for about 12-15 minutes, or just until the prosciutto gets crispy. Cool before serving.
