Stuffed Dates with Gorgonzola

With all the festivities, the invitations, the running around, the last minute shopping, planning and tight scheduling as well as other unexpected situations, there’s not much time for you to do anything extra. Even more when it comes to serving your guests fancy appetizers or bouchés which are bite-sized hors d’oeuvres. Actually, when you really think about it, you don’t have to spend much time at all to serve something both elegant and tasty.
 
When serving bouchés, you want something that can go with different types of cocktails and wines. The perfect hors d’oeuvres to me are something not too light in taste but definitely not overpowering. A little “zip” is acceptable but please don’t go beyond this otherwise you’ll have a bunch of dried up leftovers that night (unless your guests are starving to death).
 
Cheese is always a good item when hosting a soirée but serving it on its own is boring (i.e. sliced cheese on a tray…). Even with crackers, it is so unexciting. You need something to dress it up and in this video you have a great vessel for it… dates
 
Quick to make and loaded with flavor, this bouché is a great combination with almost any type of wine and definitely any cocktail. It also goes extremely well with sparkling wines and champagne. This is one of my favorites when hosting a soirée or dinner during the Holidays and after trying it, you’ll understand why.
Happy Holidays!
