I can never have too many appetizer recipes floating in my head and at the top of the list are these creamy Baked Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates.
Last minute guests, teenagers invading the kitchen looking for food or a quick treat to pair with a glass of my favorite wine or evening cocktail; these Baked Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates are deliciously simple. I love that word. Maybe that’s because life is busy and hearing the word “simple” seems to instantly infuse calm and tranquility into my moment.
I love to use locally sourced goat cheese and honey along with sweet holiday Medjool dates. If I feel extra fancy, I’ll toast finely chopped hazelnuts or pistachios and sprinkle them on top. These Baked Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates are so easy to prepare while your guests, friends or family are mingling in the kitchen, chatting, laughing and of course, general merry-making. Once out of the oven, I walk around with the baking sheet in hand, napkins and little party picks. Casual finger food that is gooey, warm, sweet and a little savory. Perfectly “simple” and delicious.
I wish you the happiest and most delicious of holidays!
Loads of Love,
