Oven-Roasted Prunes Wrapped With Pancetta

Oven-Roasted Prunes Wrapped With Pancetta created by BarbryT

People love the sweet-salty combination of this appetizer. You can substitute bacon for the pancetta, if you want an even more intense taste. You will also need 24 toothpicks.

directions

  • Preheat a broiler. Stuff each prune with about 1/2 teaspoon cheese. Wrap with a piece of pancetta and fasten with a toothpick.
  • Place the prunes on a baking sheet and broil until the pancetta is lightly crisped, turning once, about 5 minutes. Too long under the broiler and the cheese will melt and ooze out.

    Scrumptious, made with prunes or dates, both fab!

    My french husband introduced a variation of this recipe to me... his version is one he brought from france and is a popular appetizer/party food from his culture. He simply wraps dried prunes in a strip of bacon (cut in half length-wise and width-wise so it gets crispy). Bake as instructed and you have a hit. We brought it to a New Years Eve party. All our picky friends voted it the best appetizer of the night!

    I tweaked the recipe slightly to use what I had on hand- I used dates instead of prunes and I mixed some mascarpone with the blue cheese....sublime!
