Prosciutto-Wrapped Gorgonzola-Walnut Dates


Ours is the classic Italian ham: Hand-selected, hand-trimmed and carefully aged to the point of perfection. The result is a lightly salty, floral flavor that’s 100% natural – and completely irresistible.

Prosciutto-Wrapped Gorgonzola-Walnut Dates


16 walnut halves

16 pitted Medjool dates

½ cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese

8 slices Fiorucci® Smoked Prosciutto, cut lengthwise in half

16 toothpicks

2 tablespoons balsamic glaze

Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


Prep: 20 minutes Bake: 12 minutes


Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°; line rimmed baking pan with parchment paper.

Step 2

In small skillet, toast walnuts over medium-high heat 3 minutes or until lightly browned and fragrant, stirring occasionally; cool slightly.

Step 3

With paring knife, make lengthwise slit in each date, being careful not to cut all the way through. Fill dates with walnuts and cheese; wrap with prosciutto, secure with toothpicks and place on prepared pan. Bake dates 12 minutes or until prosciutto is slightly crisp; serve sprinkled with parsley, if desired, and drizzled with balsamic glaze.
