This recipe comes from one of our favorite wine bars. I almost passed it up on the menu but I was so intrigued by the truffle honey. This has become one of our all time favorite appetizers. It can even be served as a first course. This is always a hit - even if people think they don't like dates. There is something magical in the combination and I urge you to try it.
If the dates contain pits, slit them lengthwise and pop out the pit with a knife. Stuff each date with about 1/2 - 1 Teaspoon of goat cheese making sure you can close the date around the cheese. Divide the prosciutto lengthwise and wrap each date with a strip of the prosciutto then secure with a tooth pick.
Film a skillet with the olive oil and heat over a medium flame. Add a few of the wrapped dates and sauté to crisp the prosciutto and heat the date and melt the goat cheese. Remove the dates to a plate and hold them in a warmed oven.
When all of the dates are crisped, remove the plate from the oven and drizzle with the truffle honey. Serve immediately.
