These prosciutto bacon wrapped dates with manchego filling and wine reduction are created using our sponsor, Corby wines and will make any party special.
Servings 16 Dates
- 16 dates pitted
- 16 slices small very small matchstick of manchego cheese cut into the length of the dates
- 4 slices prosciutto cut into quarters
- 1/2 cup Cabernet
- 1 1/2 tbsp honey
- Pistachios for serving if desired
Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare a baking sheet with a wired cooling rack on top of it.
Carefully pry open the date at it open slit and stuff in a piece of manchego cheese. Tightly wrap the piece of prosciutto around the date, making sure to fully cover the opening like a blanket. Plate onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 11-13 minutes, or until the prosciutto gets crispy and the cheese begins to slightly melt.
Meanwhile, add the Cabernet and honey to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer until syrupy and thick.
Once the prosciutto dates are crispy, transfer them to the pan and toss in the wine syrup. Transfer to a serving tray or bowl with toothpicks, garnish with nuts and enjoy warm.
