This decadent combination of flavours is an easy prep-ahead appetizer that you can bake up in minutes before serving.
Pancetta-wrapped blue cheese-filled dates
8oz blue cheese, such as Benedictine blue
12 royal Medjool dates, pitted
12 slices of pancetta, sliced very thinly
Fill each date with the cheese and wrap with the pancetta, place in the freezer until needed. Place the dates on a baking sheet ready to bake.
Preheat oven at 400F and bake the dates for about 10 minutes or until the pancetta is crisp.
